Free dental care for veterans June 9

Special to the Times

Aspen Dental in McDonough at 1430 Highway 20 West is offering free dental care for local veterans Saturday, June 9, from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. 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. 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.

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.
