Please mark your calendar! This year’s Colorado Mission of Mercy (COMOM) will be held at the Phil Long Expo Center in Colorado Springs, Colo., Sept. 30-Oct. 3, 2010 (patient treatment days are Oct. 1-2).
We welcome you and your dental team members to join us this year. Nearly 800 volunteers are needed for this event and we encourage both clinical and non-clinical individuals to register.
If you haven’t volunteered in the past, COMOM is a large-scale, 100-chair portable dental clinic. It is held in a different area of Colorado annually and offers free dental treatment to adults and children who cannot afford dental services. Volunteers literally transform an open warehouse-type space into a fully-functional dental clinic in less than 24 hours, and then open the doors to the public for two days of donated treatment. Dental care is offered first-come, first-served and the dental clinic volunteers provide cleanings, restorative services, extractions, root canals, limited prosthodontic services and dental education.
