These folks are trying to get back into the workforce, but if their smile or mouth is full of pain or inflammation is keeping them from doing that, I think we can help.

Las Vegas Dentist office launches Freedom Friday, a program aimed at providing no cost general and cosmetic dentistry for unemployed veterans.
For some unemployed veterans, going to the dentist is a luxury they simply can't afford. Fortunately the Doctors at Warm Springs Dental in Las Vegas, Nevada are changing that with a program called Freedom Friday.
Dr. Todd Newton, along with his partners, Dr. Corry Timpson and Dr. Robert Nisson were inspired to launch the program earlier this year after learning about the number of military personnel that deal with unemployment upon returning home.
“These folks are trying to get back into the workforce, but if their smile or mouth is full of pain or inflammation is keeping them from doing that, I think we can help,” said Dr. Newton.
So the three doctors decided to give up their Fridays to do pro bono work for homeless and unemployed veterans that reside in the Las Vegas, Nevada area. What they also found was that others in the dental industry wanted to give back to the veterans as well. So far, 17 specialists and vendors have signed on as contributors.
Because time and equipment is donated, the veterans can get the most comprehensive treatment plan available. “We get to do the dentistry that should be done without a dollar sign attached to it,” Newton said.
For the veterans that have been treated, Freedom Friday has been a God Send. They know all to well that the world judges us by appearance and a great looking smile is a huge part of that.
Freedom Friday was founded in January of 2013 by Todd W. Newton, D.D.S and his partners at Warm Springs Dental with the mission of Helping Those That Have Fought For Our Freedom. Providing free dental care to Veterans in need is their way of giving back to the community that has supported them for over 22 years. For More information, go to FreedomFriday.org.
