Through the Aspen Dental Healthy Mouth Movement, volunteer dentists and team members devoted their time in Lansing, Michigan, Oct. 9, 2015, to providing much-needed dental care to Veterans – free of charge. Veterans seeking service were asked to complete a registration form and then entered the Aspen Dental ‘Mouth Mobile.’
Mouth Mobile is a colorful, fully-equipped dental office on wheels. The semi and staff travel to communities nationwide providing dental services in areas where care isn’t readily available. Aspen Dental works closely with Veterans’ organizations to reach those most in need of care.
Brian Krull of Eaton Rapids, Mich., got free ex-rays and a tooth extraction. He is medically retired from the active Army, and does not have dental insurance. “I knew I had a tooth that needed to come out,” Krull said, “but I didn’t have a way to pay. The volunteer dentists are helping us Veterans greatly.”
