ETTRICK, VA (WWBT)- For no charge whatsoever, people can walk out of VSU June 15 with a better, brighter smile. Saturday, 400 volunteers will gather to give people free dental check-ups at VSU's main campus. It's an event specifically made to help people without insurance.
Fifty dentists will clean teeth, take out bad ones, and fill in cavities. It's a mad rush for VCU dentistry students like Mary Catherine McGinn, beginning to set up the event at VSU's Daniel Gymnasium.
"It's free, there are great people providing the service, and we're here to help," McGinn said in an interview Friday. "It's an awesome opportunity, and we just want to see as many people as possible tomorrow."
The event is prepared to take care of 600 people. We asked, what's the best part of cleaning strangers' teeth, and McGinn said new, clean teeth, helped one of her patients to overcome a lifetime of tragedy.
