To show gratitude to the men and women who’ve served this country, Aspen Dental will open nearly 500 of the nation’s largest network of branded dental offices to provide free care to as many as 5,000 of this nation’s veterans on Saturday, June 8, during the sixth annual “Day of Service.”

Like millions of other Americans, veterans can struggle to find oral health care when they need it, which is why veterans can call 1-844-277-3646 (1-844-ASPENHMM) to find a participating office near them and schedule an appointment. Or, they can visit the Niagara Falls location (7426 Niagara Falls Blvd.) or the Tonawanda branch (1730 Niagara Falls Blvd., Suite 300) from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on June 8.

Aspen Dental is offering free dental care for local veterans as part of its “Healthy Mouth Movement.”

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.

A press release stated. “ ‘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. This year, we expect to give free dental care to approximately 5,000 on that one special day.”

Since launching the “Healthy Mouth Movement” in 2014, dentists and their teams from Aspen Dental-branded offices across the country have donated more than $15 million in dentistry to over 22,000 veterans and people in need through their volunteer efforts.

Aspen Dental will also look to build on the success of last year’s “Day of Service” campaign, in which more than 4,300 veterans across the country received free dental care at 426 participating Aspen Dental locations.
