Offices to provide free dental services to military veterans
There are more than 20 million veterans across the United States with less than 15 percent qualifying for dental care. To help bridge this gap, Dental365 will be hosting a day of free dental services for all military veterans on Sunday, Nov. 11 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at participating locations.
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. With high costs prohibiting many veterans from securing additional insurance coverage, our heroes are lacking adequate dental care which can lead to serious, even life-threatening health problems.
In honor of Veterans Day, Dental365 will offer cleanings, x-rays, full-mouth debridement, comprehensive examinations and other same day services at the following locations: Bethpage, Long Island at 4216 Hempstead Tpke.; Centereach, Long Island at 1946 Middle Country Rd.; Tribeca, Manhattan at 19 Murray St. and Forest Hills, Queens at 7009 Austin St. Participating locations will be accepting walk-ins—alternatively, veterans can schedule an appointment for care by calling 844-636-7331.
Founder and CEO of Dental365, Dr. Scott Asnis is no stranger to the veteran community—he began his over 30-year career with a residency at the Brooklyn Veterans Administration Hospital in 1984, where he provided direct care to eligible military veterans. Asnis and the Dental365 team are honored to be providing these vital services to all our nation’s heroes in celebration of Veterans Day.
“It’s important that we continue to support our veterans after they return home,” said Asnis. “Our Veterans Day initiative is just one of the many ways Dental365 is doing our part to give back and show our appreciation of the many risks and sacrifices made by all.”
