Free Dental Care Christmas Eve

Comfort Dental offers free dental care to anyone in need on the 31st annual Care Day, Wednesday December 24, 2014.

Yeah, going to the dentist is the last thing anyone wants to do on Christmas Eve.  But it’s tough paying those dental bills and I hate the thought of anyone – especially kids – missing out on dental care for lack of funds.   These dentist angels from Comfort Dental are volunteering their time and services to provide assistance and relief to those who can’t afford regular dental attention.

Comfort Dental Care’s free dental treatment on Wednesday December 24 is offered on a first-come, first-served basis, from 7:30 am – 11:30 am.  The free clinics are intended to provide basic dental care from cleanings to extractions. More serious problems will be handled according to the discretion of the dentist.

Comfort Dental offices in eleven states are participating, including Comfort Dental New Mexico, at these Albuquerque Comfort Dental locations.

In 2013, Care Day provided $1.5 million in free dental care services to nearly 5000 patients nationally.  As VP Dr. Neil Norton says: “There are a lot of families out there who just can’t afford dental care, and this is their only dental visit all year.” It’s best to arrive early.

Thanks to the tooth fairies at Comfort Dental for working on Christmas Eve, and for donating this gift of free dental care to the community.  Find all the info on Comfort Dental free Care Day at the link.

Comfort Dental offices in nine states are participating, including Comfort Dental New Mexico, at these Albuquerque Comfort Dental locations.

In 2010, Care Day gave $2 million in free dental services, and as the economy is so very challenging these days, they expect large crowds for 2011. As VP Dr. Neil Norton says: “There are a lot of families out there who just can’t afford dental care, and this is their only dental visit all year.” It’s best to arrive early.

New Mexico Mission of Mercy free dental treatment for NM adults and children on October 15-16, 2010.

It’s tough paying those dental bills and I hate the thought of anyone – especially kids – missing out on dental care for lack of funds.

The New Mexico Mission of Mercy two day dental clinic provides free treatment to New Mexican adults and children who can’t afford dental care, or who don’t have a regular dentist.

The Mission of Mercy clinic on Friday and Saturday October 15-16 is a first-come, first-served deal, they don’t take appointments, and doors open early at 5 am.

Free services including teeth cleaning, fillings, crowns, extractions and even root canals. Patient information says to expect a wait – so bring a book or something to keep you occupied, and any drinks or snacks.

The free dental clinic takes place at EXPO New Mexico, and obviously there’s a limit to clinic capacity, so don’t leave it too late to turn up.

  • When: Friday and Saturday October 15-16, 2010
  • Time: 5 am to 5 pm

Pass the New Mexico Mission of Mercy info on to anyone who might need it!

Free Medical Care

How much do we love our readers?? Be sure to read the comments thread for more details about what does — and doesn’t — cost money at the clinic. And please note the corrected hours!

Yes, it’s true. In fact, some people may believe it’s too good to be true, because the physicians offering this service say not enough people are taking advantage of it!

On the first and third Sunday of every month (the next date will be this Sunday, July 19, 2009), doctors at the “Doctor On Call” clinic at Coors and Rio Bravo SW offer free non-emergency medical care to anyone who walks through the door. No strings attached.

Seriously.

They don’t check ID. They don’t ask if you have insurance. They don’t verify your income. Just walk in and the doctor will see you. Doctor on Call is open 24/7 but the free service is available only from 9:00am – 1:00pm on designated Sundays.

Note that the free service is provided only at the southwest Albuquerque location: 3211 Coors Blvd SW.

Tell them Dr. Cheap referred you.
