Prospective patients will put their name on a sign up sheet as soon as they come in the door. Minkowsky said. "The thing that i think is most rewarding is to get a lot of these people out of pain. Staff at the practices are also donating their time. "Dr. Bernardy thought it was something we could do for the community. He's hoping it'll give us a good feeling inside," said Linda Hoffman, office manager at Riverview Dental Associates.

"I'll wait here as long as i have to" She said. "It's unbelievable. We're going to thank them a million times."
