A growing number of Americans are without dental insurance.
But Saturday, people across Kentucky took part in "Dentistry from the Heart” at Pearson Justice Dental and Lexington Dental Center.
The program provides free extractions, filling and cleanings to people who don’t have dental insurance.
There are 200 annual "Dentistry from the Heart" events nationwide.
Dentists at Pearson Justice Dental said their goal today was to see 400 patients.
More than $8 million of free dental work has been given through this organization.
