Between 7:30 and 11 Thursday morning, Comfort Dental locations across the country offered free services to around 4,000 patients.

Dentists at one Denver office say it’s an important day because so many people are still struggling to afford the care they need.

“It’s something that means a lot to all of us. We are happy to do it and we are trying to fill a need that needs to be served,” said Dentist Michael Love.
