Hundreds flock to free dental clinic - ABC6 - Providence, RI

Hundreds flock to free dental clinic -  Rhode Island is 85% fluoridated: Dozens waited in the rain overnight, and hundreds more showed up Saturday morning for a free dental clinic in Lincoln. It was so busy, volunteers had to stop letting people in just one hour after it started. Only half of them made it inside for care.

One in four people in Rhode Island don't have any dental insurance, so they've really had nowhere to turn before this free clinic. Some of them have been in pain for more than a decade.
