BATON ROUGE (FOX44) - First and second graders were smiling about free dental checkups Friday.
It was Give Kids a Smile Day, and East Baton Rouge school officials got kids from Villa del Rey Elementary school for general dental check-ups and cleanings.
LSU athletes were also there to help the youngsters through their first checkups.
All in all, there were about sixty kids who got free cleanings, and even though the dentists were busier than usual, they had a great time with the kids.
February is National Children's Dental Health month, and these checkups will be going on every friday till March.
