A local dentist was making house calls Wednesday, or rather school calls, making a stop at Stewart Elementary School in Quincy.

Dr. Walker giving free dental screenings to all students.

The school board held the dental clinic to make sure students are aware of any serious dental problems.

Shaia Beckwith, Gadsden County school spokesperson, says, "These checks are very important because if the children don't feel well physically, they can't perform well academically. We want to make sure that the children are in their best possible physically shape so they can perform well."

Another dental clinic will be held Saturday for anyone who does need serious dental work performed.
