For the last 29 years Comfort Dental has provided free dental work to those in need on Christmas Eve.

Locations in Colorado Springs opened their doors to the first 100 patients.

Dr. Travis Edwards said, "we give people an option.  They can have a basic cleaning, we will do a filling or an extraction depending on what the person needs."

Lakeisha Harris was one of the lucky hundred.  "I lost my insurance.  I had a bad tooth.  I can finally sleep tonight without waking up with my tooth killing me."

Comfort Dental has given millions of dollars in free dental work to those in need nationwide since the program began.
