Operation Open Wide 2016


Free Dental Treatment for Veterans

Sponsored by Shamblott Family Dentistry and Beyond the Yellow Ribbon Communities

KARE 11 Coverage for Operation Open Wide

Honoring Veterans

Shamblott Family Dentistry, a Minneapolis-area family dental office owned by Dr. Scott Shamblott, D.D.S., has created an event to lend a hand to honor area veterans.  Free dental services will be provided to approximately 15 veterans in need of dental services.  This is the second year of the event, with hopefully many more to come.

Beyond the Yellow Ribbon Partnership

Beyond the Yellow Ribbon organizations, American Legions and the County of Veterans’ Services Officers in and around the Hopkins, MN area, will be asked to promote the event to veterans.  All organizations will refer veterans to the contact person listed at the bottom of this notice. The veterans will then be contacted individually, to set up an evaluation appointment on June 29th to determine what services need to be done.  Fifteen veterans will be able to be served at this event and the list will be compiled on a first-come, first-served basis.

On July 6th, the pre-screened dental services will be completed at Shamblott Family Dentistry by their staff of dentists, hygienists and dental assistants.

Pre-screening Evaluations on June 29, 2016.
