Gulf Coast State College Dental Programs will take part in Veterans Stand Down by hosting a free dental screening for homeless veterans on Friday, October 5. The goal is to provide the urgent care these veterans wouldn’t otherwise receive, and the connection is personal. GCSC’s full-time dentist, Dr. Elvira Chiccarelli, is a veteran as well. She and adjunct dentists, along with dentists from the community, will volunteer their time and care for this targeted population.
The free service includes X-rays and radiographs to identify treatment needs. Immediate and urgent care will be provided for dental hygiene treatment, restorations, tooth extraction or full mouth extractions in preparation for dentures.
The first group of patients arrives at 9:00 a.m. For further information, please contact Justice at email@example.com or (850) 747-3248.
