Veterans receive free dental care in Aspen Dental’s annual day of service

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A total of 500 Aspen Dental practices provided free care exclusively to as many as 5,000 of our nation's veterans.

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.
