Aspen Dental will provide a day of free dental care for veterans on Saturday, June 25.

Starting Wednesday, veterans can call 1-844-AspenHMM to schedule an appointment in advance at participating offices in the Waco area.

The participating offices are the Aspen Dental on 2320 W Loop 340 STE 200B in Waco or 1530 Texas Ave. South STE 300 in College Station.

The event will be held from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Of the more than 21 million veterans across the U.S. today, fewer than 10 million are enrolled for U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs health benefits, which for many does not include dental care benefits, and more than 1.2 million lack health insurance altogether
