EDISON — The Middlesex County College dental clinic was the home of bright smiles in February as 75 children from all over the area visited for free dental care. Local dentists, hygienists, and dental students and alumnae volunteered their time and talents as the treated kids who received an exam, cleaning, fluoride treatments, sealants, as well as education on how to brush and floss. The free care was valued at over $73,000. The college was one of 107 locations in New Jersey that helped brighten kids smiles that day.
