Zufall’s Dental Van regularly visits the VA’s Morristown Outpatient Clinic where vets can register on-site to receive a free first visit on the Van. A patient’s first visit may include a clinical exam, x-rays, tooth polishing, fluoride treatment and a treatment plan. If further treatment is needed, vets can schedule a follow-up visit on the Van or at one of Zufall’s dental offices nearby for a discounted rate. This program is supported by a grant from The Arconic Foundation. Learn more about Zufall’s Mobile Dental Services HERE.
Dover, NJ — Army veteran Frank Mazzie hadn’t seen a dentist in a dozen years, so he jumped at the chance for what he considered a “goodwill mission for my mouth.”
The Nutley resident and more than 200 other veterans from North and Central Jersey flocked to Dover this weekend to be part of the state’s first ever Mission of Mercy — Smiles for Our Heroes, a Veteran’s Day observance to honor them with free, much-needed dental care and more.
The two-day event, a partnership of Delta Dental of New Jersey and Zufall Health, brought together 140 volunteer dental professionals and clinical and non-clinical support staff to provide services ranging from cleanings and x-rays to root canals, extractions, and even dentures.
