SMILES FOR TROOPS
The Peninsula Center of Cosmetic Dentistry holds the annual Smiles for Troops event in honor of Veteran’s Day. The entire team comes together for a full day to provide free dental care to military veterans who have served abroad. The 2019 charitable program was their 7th annual event.
Dental care abroad tends to be substandard or completely inaccessible.. When the brave men and women of our Armed Forces return home, they often have difficulty accessing dental care through the Veterans’ Healthcare Administration, and can face extensive wait times for basic care.
Dr. Field’s brother serves in the Air Force, so it is a cause close to home. Other PCCD team members have veteran family members as well.
