Day of Service for Veterans, June 25th
Call Toll-Free To Make An Appointment: 844-ASPEN-HMM
Aspen Dental dentists and teams are pleased to bring free dental care to veterans nationwide once again on June 25. Nearly 400 Aspen Dental offices in 33 states will open their doors to serve veterans in their local communities as part of the Healthy Mouth Movement, a community giving initiative.
Interested veterans should call 1-844-ASPEN-HMM to find a participating Aspen Dental office and schedule an appointment in advance. During appointments on June 25, volunteer dentists and teams will focus on treating the most urgent need of each veteran by providing free services – including fillings, extractions and basic denture repair – to help get them out of dental pain.
In 2015, nearly 300 Aspen Dental practices were honored to treated more than 3,500 veterans in one single day of care in June, resulting in nearly $2 million in donated dentistry.

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 will be 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.
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.
What about dental needs after that day?
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.
Is the MouthMobile wheelchair accessible?
Where does the MouthMobile travel to?
Aspen Dental MouthMobile tour will continue to travel coast to coast.
Do patients need insurance/payment?
No. Aspen Dental team members are volunteering their time and talents – no payment will be accepted.
Will patients be required to prove that they are unable to afford care?
No. Patients will not be charged for any services, nor will they be asked to show any proof of income or need.
