WABC-TV and the NYU College of Dentistry are teaming up for the 25th year to provide free dental screenings. On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, while many students are on spring break, the screenings will be offered at the NYU College of Dentistry, located at 24th Street and First Avenue.

The screenings are from 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m., and no appointment is necessary.

Children and adults are welcome.

Free diabetes and blood pressure screenings will also take place.

All children ages 6 months to 10 years will receive a cute, cuddly "healthy smiles" teddy bear commemorating their visit. Adults and children will receive free dental screenings and vouchers for free oral examinations and polishings.

Vouchers for free dental sealants will be provided for children, as well as for free custom-made mouth guards for young athletes.

Visitors will also receive free toothbrushes and other personal oral hygiene products.
