A free dental clinic in Sioux City drew quite a crowd Saturday.
At 2:30 a.m., the first people lined up, nearly six hours before the doors to Lilly Family Dentistry were set to open.
"About six o'clock, we were sitting outside, and it started raining. So, they moved us under the shelters and stuff," said Bailey McMahon of Allen, Neb.
When they opened their doors patients received everything from teeth cleanings, to fillings and extractions.
The dentists say they're grateful to be able to help provide care that some people can't always get.
"It's tough for some people to get routine care and there's been several that have been in pain for quite a while and this is one way that we can get them out of pain and make their lives better," said Kevin Lilly, dentist for Lilly Dental Care.
More than 40 volunteers came out to help, including dentists and staff from other clinics
"They're wonderful people," said Veronica Windle of Sioux City. "They're really good at it and they really have gentle hands and you don't have to worry about paying or anything. It's just awesome."
All total, the clinic provided $18,000 worth of dental care to 70 patients. The dentists hope to hold a similar clinic in September.
