Albany  -- Hundreds of Albany students got free dental screenings Monday morning. Kindergarten through fifth graders at Magnolia Elementary were given dental screenings through the A.C.S. dental initiative.

Affiliated Computer Services from Jonesboro joined with Albany Dentists to give the exams. Dr. Charles King and Dr. Cleveland Mann gave some of these kids their first dental exam ever. A.C.S. Administrator for External Affairs Coran Boyd said "There are a lot of tooth decay, and toothaches and what not. We found that is the leading cause of childhood absences of school."

Children with dental problems were referred to Albany Dentists for further help.

This is the second year that A.C.S. has sponsored the dental initiative for students across Georgia. They plan to expand their program to Florida, Mississippi, and Texas later this year.
