A free dental clinic that draws thousands of patients each year will return to Hartford this fall.

Hartford Mayor Luke Bronin, along with former University of Connecticut men's basketball coach Jim Calhoun, announced on Wednesday that the annual Mission of Mercy clinic will be held at the XL Center in September.

Bronin and Calhoun joined members of the Connecticut State Dental Association to announce the clinic's 9th annual event.

It is set for Sept. 16 and 17.

Also known as CTMOM, the free dental clinic will provide a full range of dental services to more than 2,200 people during its two days.

It will feature 146 dental chairs and more than 1,300 volunteers.
