Brink Street Dental, Office of Dr. Kyle Heaton to Provide Free Dental Care to Military Veterans
On Monday, November 11, 2019, Brink Street Dental, the dental office of Dr. Kyle Heaton, will open its doors to provide free dental care to military veterans in need. As part of the Illinois Dentists Salute initiative, member dentists of the Illinois State Dental Society around the state are volunteering their time and staff to pay tribute to the brave men and women who have served our country in the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard.
Neglected dental needs cause unbearable pain, difficulty eating, and life threatening infections for our veterans. This problem is widespread, and the treatment is underfunded—or not funded at all. Through the Illinois Dentists Salute program, Illinois veterans are eligible to receive complimentary dental services at Dr. Heaton’s office on November 11, 2019. Dr. Heaton and his dedicated staff will provide dental cleanings free of charge. Veterans should call Dr. Heaton’s office at (815) 356-0045 to schedule an appointment, as spaces are limited.
“Most brave veterans return home to find that they do not qualify for any government coverage for dental services”, says Dr. Heaton. “We want to show veterans our respect and gratitude by giving hope to those in desperate need of oral health care.”
