ROCKWALL – Comfort Dental is offering free dental exams, cleanings, x-rays, extractions and fillings for as many patients as the the four dentists in their Rockwall office can see on their annual “Care Day,” Dec. 24, from 7:30 – 11:30 am.
Patients are helped on a first-come, first-served basis and all services are completely free, with no strings attached, according to Rockwall franchise owner and dentist John Leinweber DDS. All four Rockwall office dentists will donate their time and expertise on Care Day to help local residents who may not be able to afford regular dental care. They expect to be able to treat about 100 people.
The office is located at 515 E. I-30, just east of El Chico restaurant and 24-Hour Fitness. For information, call 214-771-4603.
“More serious dental problems are handled on a case-by-case basis and at the discretion of the individual dentist on Care Day,” said Dr. Leinweber. “We provide free dental care to help people. If someone has a bad tooth, hopefully we can help them feel better. For some people, including kids, Care Day may be the only time they see a dentist all year. We’re dentists so we give away dental services for the holidays.”
All Comfort Dental offices in 11 states will be are participating in Care Day the morning of Dec. 24 in Arizona, Colorado, Indiana, Kentucky, Missouri, New Mexico, Ohio, Texas, Kansas, Nebraska and Washington. Last year on Care Day, over 6,000 patients were seen and Comfort Dental gave away $1.5 million in free dental services at all 11 offices.
