All American Dental’s inaugural Veterans Dental Day event, sponsored by Veterans United Foundation, Kerr Dental, Garrison Dental and Benco Dental, will take place Saturday, February 9.

Veterans can receive free exams, dental X-rays, cleanings, fillings and extractions Saturday, according to the Missourian.

All American Dental owner Dr. John Wietholder (shown) said in a statement that his firsthand experience as a veteran made him realize the necessity of giving back to them.

“It is our hope that offering this free dental day will allow those veterans a chance to obtain care without having to worry about the associated financial implications and even perhaps reduce their dental anxiety,” he said.
