ETTRICK, Va. (AP) - Virginia State University says its first free dental clinic provided services to 426 patients.


The university announced results of the "VSU Cares" event Wednesday.


According to the university, more than 400 volunteers - including 56 dentists - provided more than $200,000 in donated care. Services included 425 fillings, 369 routine extractions, 150 surgical extractions, 83 cleanings and four root canals.


The June 9 program was a partnership between VSU, the Virginia Dental Association and the Virginia Commonwealth University.


VSU says it plans to make VSU Cares an annual event and hopes to add vision services in 2013.
