The Harbison Aspen Dental office is one of nearly 450 Aspen Dental practices will open their doors June 24 from 9 am – 3 pm to provide free dental care for thousands of veterans across the nation.

Local veterans can call 1-844-AspenHMM to schedule an appointment at a participating office in the Columbia area. Appointments are required and available on a first-come, first-serve basis. The Harbison office is at 368 Harbison Boulevard #201, Columbia.

Of the more than 21 million veterans across the U.S., fewer than 10 million are enrolled for U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) health benefits, which for many does not include dental care benefits, and more than 1.2 million lack health insurance altogether. The June 24 Day of Service will be Aspen Dental’s fourth, and is the largest single-day oral health initiative targeted at veterans. It’s part of Aspen Dental’s Healthy Mouth Movement, a community-giving initiative to deliver free dental care to veterans.
