It was a busy day at WVU at Parkersburg as folks set up for the Mission of Mercy Dental Clinic, but not nearly as busy as they're expecting the next two days to be.
Volunteers helped set up about 60 dental chairs at the college, that will get plenty of use Friday and Saturday.
The clinic is a way for people to get free dental exams and teeth cleanings.
Officials say it took a lot of unselfish help to make the event possible.
"We have gone through our list of people who have donated to this whether it's in time, whether it's in material or whether it's money, and we've come up with a list almost 100 names long. This is an event that Parkersburg can really be proud off," Dick Wittberg, executive director of the Mid-Ohio Valley Health Department, said.
The clinic lasts from 6:00 a.m. to 6 p.m. both days, and dentists will see patients on a first come first serve basis.
Officials are expecting to serve 1,400 to 1,500 people total.
