BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- Chandler Park Dentist hosted their 9th annual Smiles from the Heart day where they provide free cleanings, x-rays, extractions and fillings to people all day long.

Over 150 people taking advantage of these free services all day long event.

"It's just nice for the community overall. It's not something that individualizes one person, it's everyone can just come and do it, and dental work is expensive, so it's nice that they're offering free stuff," said Elizabeth Burgett, patient.

Doctors came in from surrounding dentists and even regionally.

"I appreciate the dentists that are taking part," said Bruce Wilson, patient.
