Veterans to receive care from Aspen Dental


On Saturday, June 9, nearly 500 Aspen Dental practices will open their doors to provide free care exclusivel­y to as many as 5,000 veterans. Appointmen­ts are still available at the following locations: and Aspen Dental Associates of NE PC, 1692 E Main St., Torrington; Smiles By Suzy Dental PC, 1600 South East Road, Farmington; and Aspen Dental of Greater Hartford PC 1128 Farmington Avenue, Bristol.

Veterans can call 1-844-277-3646 to schedule an appointmen­t. Appointmen­ts are required and available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Like millions of other Americans, veterans can struggle to find oral health care when they need it, and are not eligible for dental benefits through the Veterans Administra­tion unless they are 100% disabled, have a service-related mouth injury or were a prisoner of war.

This is Aspen Dental’s fifth annual Day of Service and is part of Aspen Dental’s Healthy Mouth Movement, a community-giving initiative that delivers free dental care to veterans.

Since the Healthy Mouth Movement started, nearly 10,000 Aspen Dental team members have given more than $10 million in donated dentistry to over 17,000 patients in need. Local veterans can call 1-844277-3646 to schedule an appointmen­t at a participat­ing office.
