Newman Springs Dental Care wants to help those that the Department of Veteran Affairs has not been able to.
Drs. Julia Cintron and Aparna Menon along with Dr. Friedman and their team of volunteers will do whatever they can to relieve dental pain and fix dental problems. The dental volunteers will provide examinations for cavities and gum disease, digital x-rays, blood pressure, Velscope (advanced oral cancer) screenings and a complete review of findings. Screening for periodontal disease which has strong links with systemic conditions such as cancer, Alzheimer’s Disease, heart and kidney disease, diabetes and stroke risk will be part of the program.
A choice of an extraction, filling or cleaning will be provided.
This dental care for Veterans will be provided at Newman Springs Dental Care, 539 Newman Springs Rd., Lincroft.
Veterans who need ongoing care or who have problems that cannot be fixed in one day are referred to community clinics, where they can receive ongoing treatment at low or no cost.
Newman Springs Dental Care has been the home of Dentistry From The Heart since 2007. For more information about Dentistry From The Heart or to schedule an appointment for Veterans Smile Day, call 732-741-6444 or visit www.NewmanSpringsDentalCare.com. Veterans will be required to present their “Certificate of Eligibility” to be offered any donated services.
