Nearly 150 million Americans didn't go to the dentist last year. Millions more live in places where there is little or no access to care. Other barriers get in the way, too, like cost, lack of insurance, and fear. Aspen Dental is determined to change that through special initiatives, programs, and the everyday excellence and commitment from the teams.
In 2014, Aspen Dental launched the Healthy Mouth Movement®, an initiative designed to bring care to those who need it most. Since then, Aspen Dental practices have donated more than $15 million in free dental care, helping as many as 20,000+ patients. And that’s just the beginning.
As an extension of the Healthy Mouth Movement, Aspen Dental created the MouthMobile – a 42-foot long dentist office on wheels that travels state to state providing free care to vets in communities where care may not be easy to access. The MouthMobile is handicap accessible and includes two operatories and digital X-ray equipment. Find out more at healthymouthmovement.com.
Every year, Aspen Dental teams across the country volunteer to help veterans on one single Day of Service. In 2019, more than 2,700 volunteers from 450 Aspen Dental offices donated more than $2.2 million dollars in free dentistry, to help brighten the lives of 4,500 veterans.
When we say you can make a difference at Aspen Dental, we mean it. Dentists, hygienists, lab technicians and dental assistants with Aspen Dental practices have travelled to impoverished areas around the world to help patients, such as Honduras, Haiti, Tanzania and Peru. We’re changing lives, everywhere.
