St. Louis Dental Center team donates dental treatment to military veterans

October 13, 2017

Providing care: Members of the St. Louis Dental Center team and A.T. Still University-Missouri School of Dentistry & Oral Health faculty and students pose for a photo with five veterans who received full dentures at no charge. The veterans were among dozens of patients who needed all of their teeth extracted due to disease, with many traveling hundreds of miles to the dental clinic in the Lighthouse Church in Dexter, Mo. After waiting the required healing period, the first group of patients received their follow-up care of full dentures on Sept. 23. More veterans are scheduled to receive their dentures on Nov. 4. The St. Louis Dental Center offers comprehensive and affordable oral health care services for patients in a new 79,000-square-foot facility with 93 chairs. Dental care is provided by Affinia Healthcare dentists and staff, along with A.T. Still University dental school faculty and students.
