Delta Dental and Zufall Health Honor Veterans at Third Annual “Smiles For Our Heroes”

Dover, NJ — In the heat of the Viet Nam War, Albert Grazevich knew how to handle almost any situation, but after losing several teeth many years later, he retreats when running into old friends.

“If I see my wife stop to talk to someone, I’m embarrassed and usually go the other way,” admitted the Navy veteran whose teeth needed thousands of dollars of restoration work.

But after being fitted for free dentures at the Third Annual “Smiles for Our Heroes,” Albert is looking forward to smiling again and has a much healthier outlook.

The Hardyston resident traveled to Zufall Health’s Dover Dental Center recently where veterans from all over New Jersey participated in a Veteran’s Day observance that provides free dental care to honor them for their military service.
