By  | 

BLACKSBURG, Va. (WDBJ7) People in need of dental care can get it for free this weekend in Blacksburg.

Real Life Dental is partnering with the nonprofit "Dentistry From The Heart" to offer fillings, extractions, or cleaning at no cost to patients.

The first 50 people who arrive Saturday morning will be treated.

The owner of the office tells us this is for people who typically don't have access to dental care.

"We have a culture of giving. There is a need. We've been blessed greatly, and we want to be able to give back," said Dr. Damon Thompson, the owner of Real Life Dental.

People 18 years old or older are allowed to participate.

Registration begins at 7:30 am and patients will be seen on a first-come, first-serve basis until 4:00 pm at the office's Kent Square location at 250 South Main Street, Suite 212.
