In brief


Free dental clinic is set

Free dental care for adults and children who may not have access to regular dental care will be offered at the fourth annual Oklahoma Mission of Mercy event on Feb. 1 and 2 in Lawton.

This two-day clinic at the Great Plains Coliseum in the Comanche County Fairgrounds is designed to meet the critical needs of dental patients of all ages by providing free dental care to as many adults and children as time, volunteers and supplies will allow.

More than 50 sponsors have signed up for the event including the Oklahoma Dental Association, the Oklahoma Dental Foundation, Delta Dental of Oklahoma Oral Health Foundation, and the Oklahoma State Department of Health, as well as local contributors like the Comanche County Health Department, the McMahon Foundation and the Lawton Country Club.

No preregistration is required. The first 1,000 people through the doors will qualify each day. For more information, go online to
