Aspen Dental gives back to veterans with free service

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Veterans across the Coastal Empire and Lowcountry received free dental care on Saturday.

Aspen Dental provided the free dental care as a way to give back to veterans for their service. Many veterans are not eligible for dental benefits through the VA.

Appointments were required and available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Makayla Hanson, practice manager, said the office saw close to 20 veterans.

"This day just really means a lot to our whole entire office being that, this is something that not a lot of places are able to do. Unfortunately, veterans are not able to get access to dental care as easily as others and so for us to be able to take one day out of the year and provide free dental care to them, it means absolutely everything to us," said Hanson.
