MADISON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Dozens of people received free dental work Friday at Key Dental Group in Madison.  

The first person in line arrived around 11:30 p.m. Thursday.  Dentists, dental hygienists, and oral surgeons spent the day doing teeth cleanings, fillings and extractions.

The event is part of a program called Dentistry From the Heart that helps adults who don't have dental insurance. 

"We want to give back to the community," said Dr. Joe Collins of Key Dental Group. "We wanted to use the abilities that we have, the talents The Lord has given us, to help people in that way."

Dentistry From The Heart has grown to include over 200 annual events nationwide and around the world.  More than 80,000 people have received free dental care through the program.
