Northern Michigan Veterans Receive Free Dental Care

Veterans in Traverse City were able to get dental care Tuesday free of charge.

Aspen Dental brought their mouth mobile to Traverse City and were able to see dozens of veterans.

Cleanings, x-rays and extraction were all done free of charge.

Veterans say it’s often difficult to get access to dental checkups they need.

They say they’re thankful for the generosity that made it possible to get in and see the dentist.

“It’s just an awesome privilege. It’s awesome that people would get together and reach out to veterans and do something like this for us. The access to care here in Traverse City it’s just incredible,” said Tracey Fennel, a U.S. Navy Veteran.

This was the first time the mouth mobile made a stop in Traverse City.
