University Place Dental to Host Veteran’s Free Dentistry Day

Carbondale, IL. – Veterans in the Carbondale community and surrounding areas will have the
opportunity to receive free dental services at University Place Dental on Thursday, November 9.

Dr. Bryan Goldesberry and team at University Place Dental will be honoring and supporting local
veterans as part of Veteran’s Free Dentistry Day, a day dedicated to providing free dental care to the
growing number of veterans without dental insurance.

“We understand that many veterans in our community and across the nation haven’t been to the
dentist for a long period of time. Some veterans don’t have the financial means,” said Dr. Goldesberry.
“This event is a great opportunity for us to share our time and resources with the men and women who
have dedicated their lives to our country.”

There is increasing evidence that links oral health to overall health and well-being. The signs and
symptoms of over 100 medical conditions, including diabetes, HIV/AIDS, Lou Gehrig’s disease and oral
cancer may first be detected through traditional oral examinations.

“We are incredibly thankful for everything these veterans have sacrificed,” said Dr. Goldesberry.
“Through this event, we hope to honor and support our local veterans and encourage them to adopt an
ongoing oral care regimen.”

During Veteran’s Free Dentistry Day, free comprehensive exams and cleanings OR free problem-focused
exams and treatment will be provided per patient on Thursday, November 9 between 7 a.m. and 2 p.m.
at 1366 E. Main Street in Carbondale. Patients will be accepted by appointment only. Veterans are asked
to please bring a valid form of Veteran’s Identification (Veteran’s I.D., license with Veteran’s stamp or
DD214). For more information, please call 618-549- 0208 or visit www.FreeDentistryDay.org.

“It’s very gratifying to see the impact that events like Veteran’s Free Dentistry Day can have on the life
of one person. We are grateful for this amazing opportunity to show our veterans how much their
service means to us,” said Dr. Goldesberry.
