Getting Her Confidence Back
For the past three years, Aspen Dental dentists and teams from across the country have given back to veterans in their communities as part of our Day of Service. This year, volunteers from more than 400 practices provided nearly $2.6 million in free dental care to 4,600+ veterans on this special day - empowering them with a healthy smile.
An Air Force veteran, Nadine of Pittsburgh is one of the veterans whose life changed as a result of Day of Service. Hear about how she got her smile back along with the confidence to take her role serving homeless veterans to the next level.

Yes, advance appointments are required for veterans. Please call 844-ASPEN-HMM to make an appointment in the closest participating Aspen Dental practice in your area.
Why are you doing this?
Nearly 150 million Americans didn’t go to the dentist last year, and millions more live in communities where there is little or no access to care. Aspen Dental has made it their mission to provide much-needed dental care and education to those who need it most.
When will the Aspen Dental practice in my town be having their day of service?
The 2017 Day of Service for veterans will be held on Saturday, June 24. Call 844-ASPEN-HMM now to make an appointment at a participating Aspen Dental practice near you.
What is the Aspen Dental MouthMobile?
The Aspen Dental MouthMobile is a fully-equipped dental office on wheels, which travels directly into places where care isn’t available to provide free service and raise awareness on the importance of oral health. It has two fully-functioning treatment rooms as well as a digital X-ray unit and denture repair lab.
What kind of service will veterans be able to get?
In the spirit of helping as many veterans as possible, dentists are focused on treating the most urgent dental need of each patient by providing a dental service such as a filling, extraction or denture repair.
The first priority is to get patients out of pain, make them aware of what other dental needs they have, and connect them with free or low-cost resources in their community that will help them continue to address their dental care needs.
