ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Like millions of Americans, veterans can struggle to find oral health care when they need it, and several are not eligible for dental benefits through the Veterans Administration. 

Nearly 500 Aspen Dental practices will open their doors to 5,000 veterans on Saturday, June 9.  

Aspen Dental is offering free dental care as a part of its Healthy Mouth Movement, a community-giving initiative that delivers free dental care to veterans. 

This is Aspen Dental's fifth annual Day of Service. 

Since the Healthy Mouth Movement started, nearly 10,000 Aspen Dental team members have given more than $10 million in donated dentistry to over 17,000 patients in need. 

Appointments are required and available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

The Albany office is located at 2630 Dawson Road. 

Veterans can call 1(844)277-3646 to schedule an appointment starting May 1.
