Thanks to an outpouring of volunteers from across the state nearly 1,500 adults and children were provided with free oral healthcare services at the 2019 Western Slope COMOM.
During the two-day clinic, patients underwent dental procedures amounting to more than $1,000,000 in donated care!
The Colorado Mission of Mercy (COMOM) is a large-scale dental clinic that is held annually in a Colorado community.
The concept is simple: Create a two-day dental clinic in a large facility and open the clinic doors to the community. Dental services are provided to any person on a “no questions asked” basis. Patients are evaluated and treated based on their most urgent dental needs. Patients undergo dental treatments such as cleanings, fillings, root canals, and extractions. The best part about COMOM is that this quality treatment is provided at no cost to patients.
Since its inception in 2007, COMOM has served 15,000 patients and provided $13,000,000 in donated dental care.
COMOM’s mission is to provide quality dental services, at no cost, to individuals of all ages who cannot afford and access dental care; eliminating dental pain, promoting oral health, creating smiles, and providing oral health education.
Please help further the work of COMOM by making a financial, tax deductible contribution.
Many individuals are unable to afford dental care. Oral disease can affect the ability to eat, and how a person looks and communicates. Oral health is inseparable from general health, and can affect self-esteem and compromise a person’s ability to work at home, at school, or on the job.
COMOM combines the donated services of hundreds of dental professionals and volunteers to provide free annual dental clinics in Colorado.
