It probably wasn't the way many schoolchildren would want to spend their Saturday.
But it certainly brought smiles to the faces of working class parents, initially.
Yet, by the end of the day there were smiles all around.
That's because the Florida Department of Health in Pinellas County held its Annual Back to School Dental Clinic at the agency's office at 6350 76th Ave. N. in Pinellas Park.
The annual event offer free dental examinations, X-rays and dental procedures for children ages 4 to 18.
The event runs from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. today, Saturday.
