North Aurora, IL – Veterans in the North Aurora community and surrounding areas will have the opportunity to receive free dental services at North Aurora Dental Associates on Friday, November 16.  

Dr. Ingy Nessim, Dr. Houda Tebcherany Naayem and their team at North Aurora Dental Associates 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. Nessim. “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.”

During Veteran’s Free Dentistry Day, a choice of one free cleaning, filling or extraction will be provided per patient on Friday, November 16 between 8am and 12pm at 100 N. Lincolnway in North Aurora. Patients will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. 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 630-896-3939 or visit www.FreeDentistryDay.org.

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

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.
 
“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. Nessim.
