Rockwall dentists offer free dental care to veterans

Dental check-ups are a critical part of your health. Estimates show around 27% of adults don’t have dental insurance coverage. Even with insurance, cost may get in the way. That’s where a local dental team comes in.

Marine veteran Jeff Skinner said it took some arm-twisting from a fellow vet, but Skinner ended up in the dentist’s chair last November.

“It had been many, many years since I had gone to the dentist,” Skinner said.

Looking back, the small business owner in Rockwall County said he was glad to get a checkup, cleaning and oral cancer screening.

“I ended up getting it done. Looking at it from hindsight, it was a good thing,” said Skinner.

He and around 90 veterans didn’t pay a dime, thanks to a father-daughter dentist team offering a free dental day for Veterans Day. They call it D-Day for V-Day.
