Veterans Dental DayFaculty and students from the Midwestern University College of Dental Medicine-Arizona spent the day providing free dental screenings and routine cleanings to veterans in need. Nearly 250 Arizona veterans had the opportunity to receive free screenings and treatments including cleanings, sealants, fillings, or extractions, as well as consultations about dental implants and dentures and recommendations for follow-up care. CDMA caregivers performed over 550 procedures and more than $43,000 worth of free care for those in attendance, and also provided ongoing care for several patients who received dentures milled at the Dental Institute.

The free day of dental care for veterans is one of several community dental care initiatives carried out by the students and faculty at Midwestern University and the Midwestern University Dental Institute.
