(WICHITA, Kan.)—Hundreds of Wichita kids were able to get some much needed dental work they would otherwise go without.
The Oral Health Coalition sponsored their 4th annual National Children's Dental Access Day.
It's a free clinic for kids between 3 and 10 years old for parents who are un-employed or have no access to insurance who live in the Wichita and Sedgwick County area.
From cleanings to root canals the volunteer doctors do it all. Nancy De La Rosa says she can't afford a dentist for her kids and only takes them about every two years.
"It's a very good program. I can bring my kids and know I don't have to worry about how much it is going to be. It's a good idea because this dental work is so expensive," De La Rosa said.
The clinic only had 250 spots open for kids. They just about filled them all. The program relies mostly on grants, donations, and volunteers.
