CSS Question

change bootstrap drop down to drop horizontal right

I have a drop down menu that opens a row of icons underneath it (see picture 1, names and pictures were removed to maintain privacy)
enter image description here

I am trying to make this menu to open to the right of choose child, and not underneath it (see picture 2, of what I am trying to get. the Images will open to the right of the drop down and not under it)
enter image description here

My current code is:

<div class="span4">
<div class="btn-group">
<a class="btn btn-link dropdown-toggle" data-toggle="dropdown" href="#">
<h3>Choose Child</h3>
<img id="mainIcons" src="boyStudent.png" alt="boyStudent">
<span class="caret"></span></a>
<ul class="dropdown-menu">
<li>
<div class="btn-group">
<a href="parent_homepage_2.html" style="text-align:center;" class="btn btn-link operationsButtons">
<h5>A</h5>
<img id="mainIcons" src="boyStudent.png" alt="boyStudent"></a>
<a href="parent_homepage_2.html" style="text-align:center;" class="btn btn-link operationsButtons">
<h5>J</h5>
<img id="mainIcons" src="girlStudent.png" alt="girlStudent"></a>
</div>
</li>
</ul>
