Since DLN launched its Lifeline Heroes Challenge for Veterans campaign this year, Delta Dental has been one of its biggest supporters. To date, Delta Dental has contributed $250,000 to the project. These donations have allowed DLN to significantly expand its services towards veterans, as well as recruitment efforts to find more volunteer dentists willing to see one veteran in their office each year.
“Delta Dental’s generosity has been an incredible help in our efforts to provide dental care to more veterans,” Fred Leviton, DLN President & CEO, said. “More funds raised means more heroes served, and we couldn’t be more thankful for that.”
Throughout the US, numerous Delta Dental plans have come together to support veterans in need through Lifeline Heroes Challenge.
“At the core of Delta Dental’s mission is the belief that everyone deserves a healthy smile. Across the country Delta Dental companies are dedicated to improving the oral and overall health of Americans by making dental coverage more accessible and affordable. Delta Dental is proud to partner with DLN’s Lifeline Heroes Challenge for Veterans to ensure support for our country’s heroes on their oral health care journey,” said Emily O’Brien, Delta Dental Plans Association spokeswoman.
For many veterans, dental care is not covered by their insurance or their VA benefits. Gifts through Lifeline Heroes Challenge enables DLN to link hundreds of veterans with special needs with volunteer dentists who donate comprehensive care to those who need it most.
“These veterans served their country for all of us, and the least we can do is try and give back to them,” Fred Leviton said. “Delta Dental’s dedication to giving back to veterans is helping DLN change and save more lives.”
