ECU dental and nursing students and student-athletes were among the volunteers at the Give Kids a Smile event Feb. 7 at Eastern Pediatrics and Orthodontics in Greenville.
Volunteers from ECU, along with 20 local dentists, collaborated to treat approximately 140 patients with free dental care, ranging from simple cleanings to more advanced procedures.
Visitors to the event included North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory, Speaker of the House Thom Tillis and Sen. Louis Pate. ECU coaches Ruffin McNeil and Jeff Lebo were on hand as well.
