EVERYONE FOR VETERANS

Image_202005180852

Who we serve
Veterans who comply with all first three items:
1) Have been deployed to wars/conflict areas
2) Have no dental insurance
3) Have significant financial challenges
4) Spouses of qualified veterans

Where and when
In the comfort of your office. No need to take time off.
Accommodate in your schedule at your convenience.

Why we help
1) We have a volunteer military now. Less than 1% of our population is taking up this responsibility. This is our opportunity to give back and serve those who’ve served, regardless of which war.
2) There is a significant amount of PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder) due to the multiple deployments, and TBI (Traumatic Brain Injuries) as our equipment is protective-but result in significant brain damage.
3) Suicide is rampant. For some veterans, trying to adjust back to a normal life can be a tougher battle than being at war. There are 22 veteran suicides everyday in this country.
4) Providing dental care, building trust, and showing we care is a very tangible and honorable way of saying, "Thank you for your service!" This free dentistry that you and your staff provide is more therapeutic than you can imagine! ‚Äč

What types of treatment
General dentistry procedures as you see fit. We emphasize treatment to be comprehensive, to break the cycle of continually putting out fires. It doesn’t have to be Cadillac treatment, e.g. if some extractions were done, a partial denture would be important to prevent tipping and provide adequate function. Some dentists have done bridges or implants and those, of course, are welcomed. Feel free to invite your specialists and labs to participate in the treatment.

How you can help establish dental health
1) Eliminate inflammation and infections
2) Establish adequate function
3) Establish adequate esthetics

A sustainable dental program for the veterans ‚ÄčThese veterans can continue to be regular paying patients in the future. We encourage them to save and plan to pay for future maintenance and care, with the normal doctor/patient relationship.
