PORTLAND, Ore. -- More than 1,200 dental health care professionals were offering free dental care at the Oregon Convention Center this week.

Patients were invited to come in starting at 5:30 a.m. on Monday and Tuesday and many started waiting in the chilly temps starting Sunday night.

The first Mission of Mercy on the West Coast and Oregon Dental Association partenered with community and businesses to provide the exams, X-rays, and complete surgical care.

On Monday alone, volunteers helped 761 people.
