COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo - Thousands got an early Christmas present this year in Southern Colorado. Comfort Dental held its yearly freebies for those who need dental care and can't afford it.
One of the people behind the scenes of this dental hope is Dr. Brandon Johnson. He wasn't at this most recent Christmas Eve event. He has been helping out in previous years. He told me that he and his staff are proud to be part of this yearly event, "It's really great to be that person who can help someone out and give them immediate relief."
Dr. Johnson spent eight years in the military as a dentist, four of them at Fort Carson. Volunteer work is near and dear to his heart. He's done it before and during his time in the military. Dr. Johnson told me he'd like to do more volunteer work in his career, "I think most of us have a desire to help and serve others."
That's why Dr. Brandon Johnson and the staff at Comfort Dental are our Wear Red Friday Heroes.
You may know someone who is a Wear Red Friday. Every Friday we wear red to honor our military and those who serve them. Nominate a hero. Go back to the main page, Wear Red section and click on the nomination form.
