On Saturday, June 27, dentists and team members from more than 300 Aspen Dental practices in 31 states will open their doors to provide a day of free dental care for thousands of veterans. Starting today, local veterans can sign up by calling 1-844-AspenHMM to schedule an appointment in advance at a participating office in the Corpus Christi area. Appointments are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Millions of Americans, including veterans, can struggle to find oral health care when they need it. The June 27 day of free service is expected to be the largest single day oral health initiative targeted at veterans. Itís all a part of the Healthy Mouth Movement, a community-giving initiative launched in 2014 to deliver free dental care and oral health education to people in need.
