Nearly 450 Aspen Dental practices will open their doors on Saturday, June 24 to provide free dental care for thousands of veterans across the nation as part of the Healthy Mouth Movement.
The Healthy Mouth Movement is a community giving initiative launched by Aspen Dental in 2014 to deliver free dental care and oral health education to people in need across the United States. In the past three years, over 7,000 Aspen Dental team members volunteered their time and talents to deliver $7.6 million in free dental care to over 12,000 patients in need.
Of the more than 21 million veterans across the U.S., fewer than 10 million are enrolled for U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs health benefits, which for many does not include dental care, because the VA only provides dental benefits to veterans who are classified as 100 percent disabled, have been a prisoner of war, or have a service-connected dental condition or disability.
The following Aspen Dental locations will provide these services from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. June 24:
