Neglected dental needs cause unbearable pain, difficulty eating, and life threatening infections spreading from the mouth into the bloodstream. This problem is widespread and the treatment underfunded. Unfortunately, most of our brave veterans return home to discover that they do not qualify for any government coverage for dental services unless they are 100% disabled, a POW, or the dental issue is service related.
Our older adults in nursing homes are being abused by not getting access to the strict minimum dental care although this is their legal right. For more information on this topic, please go to: www.dentistsforveterans.org/oraldisabilityrescue/federal-regulations/

In 2011, renowned dentist and philanthropist, Charles Zahedi DDS, PhD, addressed neglect and abuse of veterans and older adults by founding Oral Disability Rescue, a non-profit composed of a small group of volunteer dentists and dental assistants who provided desperately needed dental care to impoverished and disabled veterans living in Southern California. The name has since changed to Dentists for Veterans, to better reflect the service and the target population. Since its inception, over $500,000 of dental services have been provided to veterans in need; eliminating pain and infection, while improving overall health and quality of life.
