Did you know for veterans to qualify for full VA dental benefits, they must have 100 percent service-connected disability, have been a prisoner of war or have developed a dental condition during their services?
Dental Lifeline Network and The Kaufman Fund have partnered to launch a pilot program in St. Louis, Mo. to provide much needed dental care to veterans. The program involves representatives from The Kaufman fund, volunteer dentists, dental school faculty and DLN to address bringing much needed dental care to veterans. The goal is to improve veterans’ dental needs and prevent major health issues.
With hopes of expanding the initiatives across the country, DLN will continue to help those who have served.
“We’ve been serving veterans for many years, but this important pilot program will explore how we can adapt our services to address their specific needs,” Fred Leviton, president Dental Lifeline Network.
Donated Dental Services (DDS) a program of DLN, has been helping bring veterans comprehensive dental care for more than 30 years. Interested in volunteering? Click here to find out how you can help our country’s heroes.
