Posted on June 4, 2018 by admin


Doctors and their teams from nearly 450 Aspen Dental-branded practices across 37 states are opening their doors exclusively to veterans as part of their annual Day of Service on Saturday, June 9. Thousands of veterans will receive free dental care as Aspen’s way of thanking them for their service.

An estimated 191,607 veterans live in Connecticut, and most don’t receive dental benefits through the Veterans Administration. Appointments for Day of Service are still available, so please help us get the word out to veterans in your community.

Here’s how:
