Interfaith Dental recently partnered with Operation Stand Down and Centerstone to hold its second “DMD – Dental Mission Day” serving Veterans in Middle Tennessee.
Earlier this month, Interfaith Dental’s staff came together with more than 40 volunteers and dental residents to provide a day of dental care for veterans. More than $25,000 in market value dental care was provided during the event.
Many patients were pre-screened, and several patients were scheduled to return to the clinic for follow-up care. Interfaith Dental has plans for additional Dental Mission Days.
“Volunteers make these Dental Mission Days possible, and we can’t thank them enough for executing such meaningful days of care for these deserving patients. You watch patients come through the doors, sometimes in extreme pain and feeling down-and-out, and we see them leave smiling and grateful for the opportunity to receive care — and the volunteers make that happen. It’s a great day to be a part of,” Interfaith Dental CEO Dr. Rhonda Switzer-Nadasdi said.
