Local dentists donated their time and expertise Friday at the fifth annual Dentists with Heart free clinic held by the Gainesville Dental Group. Dentists from the office and other volunteers provided services such as fillings, extractions, X-rays, cleanings and, for the first time, minor denture repairs. The crowds were lined up and waiting to get complimentary dental care, which was offered to the first 60 patients, when the event began Friday morning.
