This week Gulf Coast State College is hosting its annual "Kidz Klinic."

Monday through Thursday parents can take their children ages 3 to 17 to the college where children can receive free dental exams, cleanings, and x-rays among other things.

The program is being run by both professionals and dental hygienist students at the college.

Donita Keller, a clinical instructor in the college's Dental Hygiene Department, said, "It's important to us to reach out to the community any time that we can to help and just kind of give back to the community. It also helps our students to learn more about working with children."

There are still some limited spots available. For information on how to schedule an appointment for your child, call (850) 872-3833.
