Brenda Davis, of Plymouth, blows a kiss to staff after getting a tooth extracted. She and hundreds of others were in line early Friday seeking free dental care staffed by volunteer dentists and assistants in a makeshift clinic. The CT MOM Free Dental Clinic at the XL Center in Hartford offered a full range of dental services on a first come first served basis starting at 6 A.M. Friday. More than 700 walked through the doors four hours later. The clinic continues Saturday.
