Aspen Dental Provides Free Dental Care To 3,000 Military Veterans And Spouses For Annual Day Of Service

CHICAGO, Nov. 11, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — On Saturday, November 6 more than 500 Aspen Dental locations opened their doors for the 7th annual Day of Service, providing care to nearly 3,000 military veterans and their spouses. Resulting in more than $1.9 million in free dental services, Aspen dentists across the country volunteered their time to break down barriers to care and treat the most urgent oral care needs for veterans – to help relieve oral pain, and provide everything from fillings and extractions to hygiene and basic denture repairs.

“This year’s Day of Service was an incredible success thanks to the generosity and commitment of the dentists and teams throughout the Aspen Dental network,” said Dr. Lauren McDonough, vice president of practice owner development for Aspen Dental. “In the last seven years, dentists and teams across Aspen Dental have collectively helped more than 30,000 veterans and military family members, and we’re proud to continue those efforts this year and honor those who have served.”

U.S. veterans are ineligible for dental benefits through the Veterans Administration unless they’re 100% disabled, have a service-related mouth injury, or were a prisoner of war. This year’s Day of Service success builds on the ongoing impact of Aspen Dental’s Healthy Mouth Movement, a community-giving initiative launched in 2014 to deliver free dental care to veterans in need in communities across the country.

Since the launch of the Healthy Mouth Movement, dentists and their teams from Aspen Dental-branded offices have donated more than $23 million in dentistry services to more than 30,000 veterans and people in need.
