  Free Dental Service for Veterans
Day of Service for Veterans, June 24 – Call To Make An Appointment: 844-ASPEN-HMM Aspen Dental dentists and teams are pleased to bring free dental care to veterans nationwide once again on June 24. Nearly 450 Aspen Dental offices in 35 states will open their doors to serve veterans in their local communities as part of the Healthy Mouth Movement, a community giving initiative. Interested veterans should call 844-ASPEN-HMM to find a participating Aspen Dental office and schedule an appointment in advance. Advance appointments are required. During appointments on June 24, volunteer dentists and teams will focus on treating the most urgent need of each veteran by providing free services – including fillings, extractions and basic denture repair – to help get them out of dental pain. Last year, Aspen Dental dentists and teams from Maine to Washington - and hundreds of practices in between - volunteered their time and talents to give back to veterans in their communities on one big Day of Service on Saturday, June 25. As part of the Healthy Mouth Movement, this marked the third annual Day of Service where nearly 400 participating Aspen Dental offices donated more than $2.1 million dollars in dentistry in one single day – empowering more than 4,000 veterans with a healthy smile. Thousands of stories were shared that day, but one story about Allen Williams, a veteran who has selflessly helped those around him all his life, was particularly moving as the Aspen Dental team in Waterloo, IA surprised him with a healthy and beautiful new smile. Offices in Lisbon, Manchester, Enfield, Glastonbury & Auburn, MA
