What was remarkable about that was he was joined by about 2,000 other people Thursday night doing the same thing in the dark outside a church in Woodstock. They lined up for the miracle of free dentistry. "I couldn't afford a dentist, so I didn't have much choice," said Williams, 44, of Lilburn, rubbing his jaw Friday afternoon as he sat in a lobby at First Baptist Church of Woodstock on Ga. 92 after he'd had a bad tooth pulled that had been hurting for six months.
