GREEN BAY, WI (WTAQ) - Dozens of people lined up for a free dental clinic Friday before the doors opened at the KI Convention Center on Main Street in downtown Green Bay.

The Wisconsin Dental Association is putting on the two-day clinic with volunteer dentists and hygienists. 

The WDA is hoping to provide $1 million in free dental care to an estimated 2,000 people. Care is provided on a first-come, first-served basis. 

There is currently no waiting for those who want to head down to the KI for this free clinic. Doors will remain open until about 5 p.m. Friday. They will re-open at 5:30 a.m. Saturday.

Adults and children of all ages with limited financial resources or otherwise unable to visit a dental office and who don't have a medically-compromising condition that prohibits safely receiving care are invited.

Over 1,000 volunteer dentists, dental hygienists and assistants, lab technicians, Marquette University School of Dentistry students and residents statewide will help out.
