The "Share a Smile with a Vet" program addresses the overwhelming need for uninsured veterans to receive access to affordable dental care.
Aurora, CO (PRWEB) August 12, 2013
Concorde Career College’s Aurora campus is pleased to announce their “Share a Smile with a Vet” program. Concorde is a private post-secondary educational institution that trains healthcare professionals and along with providing quality education, they work hard to give back to area communities. It was brought to Concorde’s attention that many veterans are often not eligible for dental care through the VA. Aurora’s “Share a Smile with a Vet” program addresses the overwhelming need for uninsured veterans to receive access to affordable dental care.
The pilot program for “Share a Smile with a Vet” was started by the Concorde Dental Hygiene program in Kansas City to meet the dental needs of area veterans and has now extended into Aurora to address similar needs. The program allows Concorde’s Dental Hygiene students to provide dental care for these individuals and their immediate family members until they can obtain employment and receive dental care through their employer.
The program provides veterans with many free dental services for a year, along with the same services for immediate family members at just $5.00 per service.
Dental services include:
- Comprehensive exam by a dentist
- Dental cleanings
- Periodontal cleaning (deep cleanings)
- Sports guards
- Fluoride treatments
All work will be performed by Dental Hygiene students under the close supervision of a dentist and the faculty at the Aurora campus located at 111 N. Havana Street, Aurora, CO 80010; 303.861.1151; http://www.concorde.edu/.
