Free Christmas Eve dental care brings smiles to patients’ faces

The office offering the gift of free Christmas Eve dental care wasn’t set to open until 5 a.m. But at 3:37, in the black of early morning and with the wind chill factor nearly 20 degrees below zero, security cameras showed the first patient bundled against the freezing cold and waiting at the door. Then another arrived, and another, until the line outside the Comfort Dental office at 651 E. U.S. 24 in Independence began to stretch into the parking lot.
