Shamblott Family Dentistry is offering dental care for free during its eighth annual Dentistry from the Heart event.

Dentists will be completing exams, fillings and extractions at no cost. Dental assistant students from Hennepin Technical College and volunteers will also be in attendance. The care is for low-income families or those with no insurance.

Organizers say they are hoping to help about 100 patients.

The event began at 7 a.m. Friday and runs until 4 p.m. at the Shamblott’s Hopkins location. All treatments are on a first-come, first-served basis. No appointments are required.
