Henrietta, N.Y. - The MCC Dental Hygiene Clinic hosted 'Give Kids A Smile Day' Saturday.

The event allows youngsters to get free appointments to get their teeth cleaned. It also gives dental students some real world practice.

"Some of them are scared coming in, so it was really exciting to see them leave not scared anymore," said dental student Mallorie Dygert. "Knowing that you're able to help someone who may not be able to go see the dentist regularly and make sure that they're healthy... it's a great experience."

For some kids, this was their first opportunity to get their teeth cleaned.
