(NEXSTAR/WSPA) – Going to the dentist can be a real pain, but for some kids in Atlanta, they said it was the best day ever.

More than 250 kids of all ages from Title One schools in Atlanta took a trip to Mercedes Stadium for free dental care, courtesy of the Falcons, Delta Dental and TeamSmile.

The kids received cleanings, X-rays and even extractions — in excess of $100,000 — for free.

Along with a dental checkup, Falcons players, cheerleaders and mascots were on-hand to entertain the kids, as well as an area for face painting.

And the Falcons aren’t the only team partnering with TeamSmile.

On March 1, 2019, the Carolina Panthers will be hosting a TeamSmile event, sponsored by the Charlotte Charity Golf Classic, happening on Oct. 12, 2018.
