Free dental care for Kentucky military veterans

LEXINGTON, Ky. (FOX 56) — On June 11, Aspen Dental locations across the U.S. will be participating in their “Day of Service”.

The event, now in its eighth year, provides dental care at no cost for military veterans and their families to honor their service.

During Aspen Dental’s Day of Service, the providers will focus on taking care of veterans and their families’ most urgent dental needs. This includes relieving them of any dental discomfort, dong extractions and fillings, and denture maintenance.

This year, Aspen locations in 11 Kentucky cities will be participating in the event. Those locations include:

  • Ashland
  • Danville
  • Frankfort
  • Lexington
  • Louisville (Dixie Hwy)
  • Louisville (Outer Loop)
  • Owensboro
  • Paducah
  • Pikeville
  • Richmond

Appointments are required in order to participate in the event. Call 1-844-277-3646 (1-844-ASPENHMM) in advance of June 11 to find a participating office in your community and schedule an appointment.

According to Aspen, veterans are not eligible for dental benefits through the Veterans Administration unless they’re 100% disabled, were a prisoner of war, or have a mouth injury due to military service. This is their reasoning for providing a day for any veterans to get the care they require.
