PORTLAND -- A Northeast Portland dental office is offering free dental care for people in need.

This is the third year in a row that Green Apple Dental has held the Happy Tooth Holiday.

The dentists donate their time each Christmas Eve to take care of people who are in pain and have put off dental care.

Organizers said it's important to be able to spread a little holiday cheer and give back to the community, especially with the recent violent events that have occurred across the country.
