Support the WVU dental school veterans support fund!
Our Mission & Goal
According to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, dental care coverage for veterans can depend on a number of factors including military service history, the veteran’s current health and living situation. A lack of insurance or the funds to pay out-of-pocket leaves many veterans unable to receive dental care and treatment. For that reason, the WVU School of Dentistry launched an outreach program last year to provide free oral healthcare for WV veterans.
“When these patients come in, we could be checking for not only the need for immediate treatment or urgent care, but we are also setting up care to prevent future oral healthcare problems. To be able to do that for as many as 80 veterans is a source of pride for us in contributing to our community,” said Fotinos Panagakos, DMD, interim dean of the dental school.
We Need Your Help
Veterans can receive a comprehensive examination, x-rays, a cleaning and treatment of any active disease in the mouth, to include fillings and extractions. Your support will go a long way in allowing the dental school to care for those most vulnerable in our community.
