The cost of dental care for an average family could run into the thousands of dollars. And that's if you have insurance. For the uninsured and the underprivileged, a national program gave parents a reason to smile today.

The "Give Kids A Smile" program offered free dental care for children at a dental office in Greenville. 150 area kids were signed up to get their teeth cleaned, filled or pulled Friday. Phillip Chen of Greenville has three children who were seen Friday.

In Eastern Carolina finding a dentist is almost as hard as paying for one. There are four counties in our area, that do not have one dentist.
