Local Professionals Help Children With Free Dental Care

Nearly a thousand Eastern Carolina kids are getting a free dental checkup today, thanks to "Give Kids A Smile!".

In Greenville it's the 12th year in a row that local dentists, ECU, and the Pitt County Health Department come together in a big way for small teeth.

From cleaning, to fillings, x-rays, to extractions...children seemed mostly happy this morning at Eastern Orthodontics and Pediatric Dentistry.

Low-income children in 38 counties are participating in this year's event.

Since the program started, nearly 18,000 dental volunteers have provided over $12.3 million in oral care to more than 162,000 children across the state.
