Aspen Dental in Ross, 7 other locations offering free dental care for veterans June 9
The Aspen Dental clinic in Ross Township is among eight western Pennsylvania locations that will be offering free dental care for veterans on June 9 through its annual Day of Service initiative.
“Achieving oral health is especially challenging for the majority of U.S. veterans as they are not eligible for dental benefits through the Veterans Administration unless they are 100 percent disabled, have a service-related mouth injury or were a prisoner of war,” said Julia Drabick, a spokeswoman for the national chain of dental clinics.
“Day of Service is all about thanking veterans for their service in the best way that we at Aspen Dental know how and helping to empower them with the gift of a healthier mouth,” she said.
The company estimates that since launching the program, more than 17,000 veterans have received dental care valued in excess of $10 million. About 5,000 vets are expected to be treated this year.
Appointments are required. Treatment will be administered from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on a first-come, first served basis. To set up an appointment, call 1-844-277-3646.
