Free dental care June 9 for vets
NEW ULM — On Saturday, June 9, nearly 500 Aspen Dental practices will open their doors to provide free care exclusively to as many as 5,000 of our nation’s veterans. Starting May 1st, local veterans can call 1-844-277-3646 to schedule an appointment at a participating office. Appointments are required and available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Like millions of other Americans, veterans can struggle to find oral health care when they need it, and are not eligible for dental benefits through the Veterans Administration unless they are 100% disabled, have a service-related mouth injury or were a prisoner of war.
This is Aspen Dental’s fifth annual Day of Service and is part of Aspen Dental’s Healthy Mouth Movement, a community-giving initiative that delivers free dental care to veterans.
Since the Healthy Mouth Movement started, nearly 10,000 Aspen Dental team members have given more than $10 million in donated dentistry to over 17,000 patients in need.
