Volunteer registration is now open for the 2015 Colorado Mission of Mercy (COMOM) Aug. 14-15 at Harrison School in Canon City. Dentists, dental hygienists, lab technicians, assistants and non-clinical volunteers—about 1,000 volunteers in total—will work together to provide free dental services to Coloradans in need of oral healthcare.

Volunteer dentists can work in triage, administer local anesthetic and provide treatment in the clinic’s various departments (oral surgery, restorative, endodontics, prosthodontics, and pediatrics). Find a full list of volunteer opportunities here.

The host hotel for the event is the Quality Inn and Suites at 3075 East U.S. 50 in Canon City. The room rate is $85 a night for single/double occupancy. Call 719-275-8676 to reserve your room today. Please note you must reserve your room by phone to receive the discounted rate.

Too many Coloradans lack access to basic dental care. COMOM is a portable, 125-chair dental clinic set up in a large public arena that provides free dental screenings and treatment to children and adults. Since it was established in 2007, COMOM volunteers have treated almost 11,000 patients and provided over $8.5 million in donated care. Patients from all areas of Colorado attend and benefit from this free annual clinic.
