LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Dental cleanings, fillings and even extractions--all for free.

Saturday was Free Dentistry Day at Landmark Dental Care in Floyds Knobs, Indiana. The event was created to provide dental care to the growing number of adults who can't afford dental insurance.

Anyone who needed the care was encouraged to come in. They didn't have to pay a dime--or even be patients. 

"There are so many people nowadays that don't have the opportunity to availability for dental services and for us to be able to do this is wonderful," Practice Manager Heidy Swain said.
