Aspen Dental Gives Free Dental Care to Lafayette-area Veterans on September 24

Most veterans do not receive dental care through the Veterans Administration unless they are 100 percent disabled, have a service-related mouth injury or were a prisoner of war. As a result, many veterans are not getting access to the dental care they need.

Aspen Dental’s MouthMobile travels across the country providing free care to vets in communities where care may not be readily available. On September 24, the MouthMobile will be coming to Lafayette, LA to provide free dental care to local veterans as part of its 18-stop, cross-country tour this fall. The MouthMobile is a fully-equipped dental office on wheels, now with an additional service of free oral cancer screening with OralID™.  Appointments are still available but filling up fast. To make an appointment, veterans can contact Merlinda Prejean at (337) 278-5845.


Aspen Dental has partnered with From the Heart Veterans Association to provide free dental care to local veterans. The MouthMobile (Pronounced Mouth Mobeel) is a 42-foot-long dental office on wheels staffed by local Aspen Dental dentists and hygienists.

NOTE: MouthMobile tours are available to media.
