        Hundreds showed up at the Lexington Dental Center on Saturday for  free teeth cleanings and check-ups.

        The non-profit organization Dentistry From The Heart put on the second annual event which went from 7am to 7pm.

        Local dentists and even past patients volunteered to work the entire day.

        Even a local nutritionist was on hand educating people about sugary drinks like soda, and the damage it can cause to not only your teeth but your entire well-being.

        Dr. Damon Pleasant, who helped organize the event says they plan on holding free dental care days in the future.
