Ten Plover-area veterans received free dental services from Quirt Family Dentistry – Plover on Nov. 11, during Veteran’s Free Dentistry Day.
Dr. Elizabeth Birr and team provided free oral health care to local veterans as part of Veteran’s Free Dentistry Day, a program initiated to provide dental care to the growing number of veterans without dental insurance.
The doctors and team members provided over $2,800 worth of dentistry, including extractions, fillings and cleanings to veterans throughout the day.
“Unfortunately, many veterans do not see a dentist on a routine basis,” said Birr. “We were thrilled to open our doors to those in our community and volunteer our time and resources to make sure they received the care they need and deserve.”
