South Greensburg dentist’s office offering free care for vets
A South Greensburg dentist’s office is looking for veterans who could use some free dental work.
Kraisinger Family Dentistry on Huff Avenue will host a free day of dentistry for vets Aug. 10.
Dr. Josh Parry organized the event.
“The VA dental is so backed up, it’s hard to get into it,” he said.
“My whole life, I’ve just kind of had a special place in my heart for veterans, people who are willing to go do that for everyone else.”
He’s a partner at the office, and said he’s wanted to do something like this for years.
Many veterans can get dental care through the VA, but it can be a long an inconvenient process, Parry said.
Parry, two other doctors and three hygienist will be on hand to do cleanings, fillings and extractions.
If veterans need more intensive dental work Parry said the office might be able to set them up with a separate, free appointment.
Parry hopes that August’s free day of dentistry will be the first of many. He wants to hold two a year.
Walk-ins are allowed, but appointments are encouraged.
Those interested can make an appointment by calling the office at 724-836-3368.
