FREE DENTAL CARE FOR VETERANS!
Did you know that only 15% of our nation's veterans are eligible for dental care? That leaves so many of our heroes lacking the proper care they need. Although legislation is currently sitting with Congress to address the issue,(S. 3313-Veterans Dental Care Eligibility Expansion and Enhancement Act of 2018), Long Island based dentist group Dental365 is taking the issue head on by offering free dental services to veterans on November 11th.
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 Veteran’s Day, Dental365 will offer cleanings, x-rays, full-mouth debridement, comprehensive examinations and other same day services at its Forest Hills location at 7009 Austin Street. The office will be accepting walk-ins—alternatively, veterans can schedule an appointment for care by calling 844-636-7331.
