Free dental care for local veterans June 24
On Saturday, June 24, the Aspen Dental office at 201 Newnan Crossing Bypass in Newnan will open their doors to provide free dental care for veterans.
Local veterans can call 1-844-AspenHMM to schedule an appointment at a participating office in the Atlanta area. Appointments are required and available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Of the more than 21 million veterans across the U.S., fewer than 10 million are enrolled for U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) health benefits, which for many does not include dental care benefits, and more than 1.2 million lack health insurance altogether. The June 24 Day of Service will be Aspen Dental’s fourth annual event, which is part of Aspen Dental’s Healthy Mouth Movement, a community-giving initiative to deliver free dental care to veterans at nearly 450 Aspen Dental practices across the nation.
