A local organization is helping put a smile on the faces of veterans, literally.
New Smiles For Veterans is a nonprofit organization whose purpose is to help provide veterans with the dental work that they would not otherwise be able to afford. The organization received nonprofit 501©3 status on November 1st 2016 and has been helping veterans since the beginning of 2017.
“New Smiles For Veterans was formed to fill a void in dental care which is not provided to our Veterans through the VA or by other means,” Found of the organization Dennis Matthews said.
Matthews said the organization refers veterans to dentists to provide dental work at no cost to them or their families thanks to contributions raised as well as work donated by dentists.
New Smiles plans to continue expanding our dental network across the state of Utah with the plan to reach out to other states contingent on future funding and community involvement.
