MouthMobile provides free dental care for veterans

Posted at 8:50 PM, Apr 09, 2019

INDIANAPOLIS — Getting quality dental care is an uphill battle for millions of military veterans.

Most don't receive care through the veterans administration unless they are 100 percent disabled, have a service-related mouth injury or were a prisoner of war.

That's why Aspen Dental is on tour providing free services with their 'MouthMobile.'

On Tuesday the MouthMobile stopped at the American Legion Mall downtown Indianapolis.

The MouthMobile is a fully equipped dental office on wheels, with an additional service of free oral cancer screening.

For those veterans who missed today's event, Aspen Dental is planning another day of free dental care on Saturday, June 8 at their location around central Indiana.
