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.
Individuals across the state are in need of dental care. They are in pain, frustrated, without answers, and they hope that someone will be able to help them.
Several outstanding dental organizations offer nearly free dental services for children, for the elderly, for people with disabilities, for the homeless, and for people living with HIV/AIDS. Often adults who don’t fit into these categories, who are without insurance, and who cannot afford dental treatment – are without dental resources.
COMOM has provided a way to help this situation.
While professionals on many fronts are working to establish long-term solutions to the problem of access-to-care, the remedies, in some cases, are years away. COMOM helps to fill the gap as long-term solutions are being developed and implemented.
