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.

The Aspen Dental in Ross is located at 7372 McKnight Road. The other participating locations are located at:

• 5450 Campbells Run Rd., Robinson

• 3459 William Penn Highway, Churchill

• 6088 Route 30, Greensburg

• 595 W. Main Street, Uniontown

• 306 Towne Square Way, Brentwood

• 190 Golfview Drive, Monaca

• 20000 Route 19 Suite 200, Cranberry

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
