Heads Up: Free Dental Care for Veterans

Unless a veteran has a 100% service-connected disability rating with the Department of Veterans Affairs, has a service-connected mouth injury, or was a prisoner of war, they must find their own post-service dental coverage. Many veterans haven’t even seen a dentist since they were in the military. In response to this unfortunate circumstance, Aspen Dental enacted a “Day of Service” as part of their Healthy Mouth Movement, providing free dental care to veterans. The fifth annual Day of Service will take place on June 9th, 2018.

Aspen Dental operates over 600 locations in 37 US states. To find an office near you and to make a reservation call 1-844-277-3646. Appointments are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
