Dental Care of Westminster to Host Veteran’s Free Dentistry Day
May 29, 2019 12:04PM
Veterans and American Legion members in the Westminster community and surrounding areas will have the opportunity to receive free dental services at Dental Care of Westminster on Saturday, June 22.
Dr. Arif Masood and team at Dental Care of Westminster will be honoring and supporting local veterans as part of Veteran’s Free Dentistry Day, a day dedicated to providing free dental care to the growing number of veterans without dental insurance. Dental Care of Westminster is partnering with the American Legion, Post #31, to host the event for veterans and American Legion members.
“We understand that many veterans in our community and across the nation haven’t been to the dentist for a long period of time. Some veterans don’t have the financial means,” said Dr. Masood. “This event is a great opportunity for us to share our time and resources with the men and women who have dedicated their lives to our country.”
There is increasing evidence that links oral health to overall health and well-being. The signs and symptoms of over 100 medical conditions, including diabetes, HIV/AIDS, Lou Gehrig’s disease and oral cancer may first be detected through traditional oral examinations.
“We are incredibly thankful for everything these veterans have sacrificed,” said Dr. Masood. “Through this event, we hope to honor and support our local veterans and encourage them to adopt an ongoing oral care regimen.”
During Veteran’s Free Dentistry Day, a choice of one free cleaning, filling or extraction will be provided per patient on Saturday, June 22 between 8 a.m. and 12 p.m. at 480 Meadow Creek Drive, Suite B in Westminster. Patients will be accepted on a first-come, first served basis. Veterans are asked to please bring a valid form of Veteran’s Identification (Veteran’s I.D., license with Veteran’s stamp or DD214). For more information, please call 410-848-4000 or visit www.FreeDentistryDay.org.
“It’s very gratifying to see the impact that events like Veteran’s Free Dentistry Day can have on the life of one person. We are grateful for this amazing opportunity to show our veterans how much their service means to us,” said Dr. Masood.
