SPRINGDALE -- Hundreds gathered Friday in Springdale for a free dental clinic.

Arkansas Mission of Mercy opened Friday morning at the Northwest Arkansas Convention Center. Volunteers from across the state spent their day serving patients at no cost to them. This was an opportunity many patients could not pass up.

"Since I'm between insurances, this is a great help," patient Kyle McClure said.

And for the volunteers, the reward was getting to see their patients smile.

"We know that we're doing something that makes them feel better and when they feel better, we feel better," Dr. Bob Matlock, program volunteer, said.

The event will continue through Saturday afternoon at 5 p.m.
