Case Western Reserve University marking Veterans Day with free dental exams for military veterans

Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine is celebrating Veterans Day with free dental exams for veterans and military personnel, bringing back the annual veteran-outreach effort on Friday, Nov. 10.

The dental school will offer free dental exams, X-rays and cleaning for $25. Additionally, patients may receive a $100 voucher toward future dental services if they sign up for a comprehensive treatment plan. The dental service is exclusive and limited to new patients who are veterans and military personnel (with proof of service) only.

The Veterans Day offers are by appointment only—on a first-come, first-served basis—with four time slots available: 10 a.m., 11 a.m., 1 p.m., 2 p.m. The number of appointments available is limited. Those interested are required to call 216.368.8730.

Patients will be treated by third- and fourth-year dental students and residents, with supervision from dental school faculty members. For subsequent care, clinic patients can expect discounted services of 30% to 50%, depending on the procedure, compared with standard dental rates.

Each year, the dental school’s students and residents treated more than 19,000 patients and had 72,000 appointments last year, including university students, employees and the general public at discounted prices.

The dental school clinic is at 9601 Chester Ave., Cleveland. To learn more about becoming a patient, visit the School of Dental Medicine’s website.
