Standing in Line for Dental Care, Here in the First World

The Kansas Mission of Mercy provides free dental care to those in need, once a year.

Imagine waiting in line for a day and a half - just to get a tooth pulled or a cavity filled. Lots of people did just that over the weekend at the BiCentennial Center in Salina. About 400 dental professionals and hundreds of other volunteers donated their time Friday and Saturday to provide free dental care to the 1,400 people who waited in line, during the 14th Kansas Mission of Mercy. Health reporter Bryan Thompson was there and files this report.
