With its carnival-like atmosphere and feel-good mission, Children's Dental Day is one of the most fun days of the year at the college.
"I enjoy the interaction with the kids and I feel rewarded knowing that I've provided them a great service," said Jack Huebner, a fourth-year dental student.
But it's more than just the sense of fulfillment the students get from serving, Huebner said. It's about filling a critical gap in vitally needed health care.
Since it began 11 years ago, more than 4,500 children from across the state have received more than $2 million in dental care.
