On Saturday, June 25, dentists and team members from nearly 400 Aspen Dental practices across the country will open their doors to provide a day of free dental care for thousands of veterans across the country. Starting now, local veterans can call 1-844-AspenHMM to schedule an appointment in advance at a participating office in the Hartford area. Appointments are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Of the more than 21 million veterans across the U.S. today, fewer than 10 million are enrolled for U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs health benefits, which for many does not include dental care benefits, and more than 1.2 million lack health insurance altogether. The June 25 day of free service will be Aspen Dental’s second annual, and is expected to be the largest single-day oral health initiative targeted at veterans.
