Got a friend or family member who’s a veteran or currently in the military? If so, and they’re struggling to find oral health care when they need it, mark your calendar for June 8 and make sure they find their way to a local Aspen Dental office.

This year mark’s the organization’s 6th annual Day of Service, when Aspen 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 our nation’s veterans.

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.

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.

Veterans can call 1-844-277-3646 (1-844-ASPENHMM) to find a participating office near them and schedule an appointment.
