Freedom Day 2017
The Freedom Day USA event was started five years ago by a dentist in West Virginia in light of the fact that most American Veterans receive zero Dental benefits because they must be 100% disabled, a former prisoner of war, or had the dental issue while serving to receive any coverage. Furthermore, over 1 million Veterans have no health or dental insurance, and no access to Veterans hospitals – not to mention that IF they have access and IF coverage is available to them there a 31.2% delay in care due to costs.
This is the fourth year that Prescott Dentistry has joined this national “thank you” movement. On October 12th, the entire Prescott Dentistry team donated their services and skills to provide over $35,000.00 in FREE dentistry to our local Veterans and military men and women. Forty-one patients received treatments ranging from dental cleanings and fillings to extractions, crowns, root canals and Free Whitening. Thumb Butte Dental Lab partnered with our team this year enabling us to do even more for our patients: fix partials, repair old dentures and even provide a couple of Veterans with brand new dentures!
