Meeting the Needs of Our Veterans
[New Hyde Park, NY] – November 13, 2018 – In honor of Veterans Day, Dental365 provided much-needed free dental care to nearly 100 military veterans across New York City and Long Island. Providing this care were over 30 employees that graciously volunteered their time in thanks and appreciation for the service of our veterans.
This annual event, in its second year, took place on November 11th at Dental365 locations—Tribeca, Manhattan, Forest Hills, Queens and Centereach and Bethpage, Long Island. Patients received cleanings, x-rays, full-mouth debridements, fillings, extractions and comprehensive examinations at no charge.
Lack of adequate dental care for military veterans is a significant problem in the military community. Currently the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) only provides dental benefits to veterans who are classified as 100 percent disabled, have a service-connected dental condition or have been a prisoner of war. This leads to a serious lack of proper dental care, leaving our veterans vulnerable to major, evehn life-threatening health problems.
This Veteran’s Day initiative was a major success, with the company nearly tripling the number of veterans served from the previous year. This annual event represents Dental365’s continued commitment to the veteran community of New York.
“All of us at Dental365 are thrilled to have had such a successful day of thanks to our military veterans. I am proud of our many employees that volunteered their time to make this event a success and thankful to the many veterans who have trusted us with their dental care.”– Scott Asnis, DDS, Founder & CEO, Dental365
