Nearly 150 million Americans didn’t go to the dentist last year, and millions more live in places where there is little or no access to care. Other barriers get in the way too – like cost, fear, and lack of insurance. This is especially challenging for the majority of U.S. veterans who are not eligible for dental benefits through the Veterans Administration.
Aspen Dental, along with support from NASCAR driver Danica Patrick are continuing a mission to break down barriers to better dental care, better smiles, and better lives. Now in its fourth year, the Aspen Dental MouthMobile, a fully equipped dentist office on wheels, traveled across the U.S. to provide free dental care to veterans and people in need.
