Tennessee football helps under privileged children smile

The University of Tennessee is the only college football team in the Power 5 conferences to work with team smile. Kentucky has participated for nine years, but this year UT stepped up.

With the help of 100 sponsors, 300 under privileged kids from the Boys and Girls Club received free dental care for Team Smile Day.

Team Smile Day provides oral health care and not just the basics, one little girl was able to have  a tooth extracted.

Coach Butch Jones explains what Team Smile is to Knoxville news.
