UB Dental to offer week of free services to veterans in Mayville

BUFFALO, N.Y. – The University at Buffalo School of Dental
Medicine will provide one week of free dental care to veterans in
the Southern Tier through the Dentistry Smiles on Veterans
program.

In honor of the sacrifices made by servicemen and women to the
country, the UB S-Miles to Go Dental Van will travel to Mayville,
New York, to offer dental exams, cleanings, fillings and
extractions at no cost.

Dental care will be offered Tuesday to Friday, Sept. 5-8, and
Monday, Sept. 11, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. outside the Mayville
Veterans of Foreign Wars Post (VFW) at 10 Memorial Drive,
Mayville.

Space is limited to the first 100 participants. To schedule an
appointment, contact Sarah Bemis at 716-397-2640.

Dentistry Smiles on Veterans aims to deliver needed services to
veterans who lack dental insurance or do not qualify for dental
treatment through the Veterans Health Administration, a benefit
reserved only for those with service-related dental injuries.

The S-Miles to Go Dental Van is a 42-foot-long, three-chair
dental clinic outfitted with an X-ray imaging machine, a
sanitization center and more. The clinic has served the community
for more than 15 years, providing more than 38,000 patient
visits.

The week-long program is funded through the support of the Delta
Dental Foundation and the Office of New York State Sen. Catharine
Young.
