LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Dentistry students from the University of Nebraska Medical Center are providing free dental care to Nebraska children.

The students are offering the free screenings on Feb. 1 at the UNMC's Lincoln-based College of Dentistry. Children from Lincoln, Crete, Columbus, Madison, Norfolk, and Stanton will participate, as well as children from Wayne, West Point, Wisner, Beamer, Lyons, Lexington, Hastings and Grand Island.

College dean John Reinhardt says the children selected for the program have no other access to dental care.

UNMC has been offering the program for the past 12 years. The university says students have provided more than $2 million in dental services to nearly 5,000 children.
