Lake Oconee Dentistry will be hosting Stars, Stripes and Smiles, a free day of dentistry for active and retired military, as well as law enforcement, firefighters, DNR and EMS personnel on Friday, October 29th.
Drs. David and Patti Bradley, Dr. Shelly Pound and Dr. Andrea Feldman, as well as Lake Oconee Dentistry hygienists, dental assistants, and other team members, will provide event attendees with their choice of a free extraction, filling or cleaning that day. Dr. David Miller, an oral surgeon and owner of Lake Oconee Oral Surgery and Dental Implant Center, will also be donating his time, along with his team, in order to help as many people as possible.
Those who serve are under-served
Fewer than 10 million of the 21 million veterans are enrolled for US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) health benefits. More than 1.2 million veterans lack health insurance altogether. This gap is even more pronounced when it comes to dental care. That’s because the VA only provides dental benefits to veterans classified as disabled or as a prisoner of war — or as veterans who have a service-connected dental condition.
This year, the practice is once again expanding the event to include the hometown heroes – law enforcement, firefighters, DNR and EMS personnel — who work daily to keep our local communities safe.
“Oftentimes those who serve our country and communities are, unfortunately, among the most under-served when it comes to healthcare,” says Dr. David Bradley. “Stars, Stripes and Smiles is our way of honoring those who have given – and continue to give — so much to ensure our safety and make this country what it is today.”
If you are a veteran or hometown hero and are interested in receiving free dental treatment on October 29th, please call the office at 706-453-1333 for an appointment time. You do not have to be a patient of Lake Oconee Dentistry or Lake Oconee Oral Surgery to receive treatment.
