EDISON — The Middlesex County College dental clinic was the home of bright smiles on Friday as 46 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 work was the equivalent of over $37,000 worth of services.
