CHAMPAIGN -- Students at Parkland's Dental Hygiene Program know how important healthy teeth are. That's why they're holding a free clinic Saturday.

Students spent Friday afternoon prepping for the big day. More than 100 patients will get their teeth cleaned and checked.

It's the first year Parkland is holding the clinic, but they hope to make it an annual event. Saturday's clinic is full, but Parkland says Francis Nelson Health Center has a year-round dental program available for those who need help.
