On Saturday, June 27 one of True Dental Discount’s network providers, Aspen Dental, is offering a day of free dental care to all veterans. Aspen Dental is offering their services at over 300 locations across the United States from 9am to 3pm.
A whopping 150 million Americans avoid the dentist each and every year. As mentioned in previous blogs, dental work is expensive, which tends to stray people from visiting the dentist. Yes, there are countless other reasons people avoid the dentist, however, there is no such thing as a good excuse to visit one; oral hygiene and care is of the utmost importance to your overall health. Aspen Dental understands that veterans may have issues seeking dental care due to certain restrictions on being eligible for benefits through their department affairs. Aspen and its team members did over $1 million worth of free dental in 2014, and stress the importance of dental health and education through their community, the “Healthy Mouth Movement”.
The Aspen Dental community encourages all veterans seeking help for their dental needs to make an appointment at your local Aspen Dental practice. *Please note, it is a first-come, first serve basis so again, making an appointment as soon as possible is highly recommended.
