Fellow ACE dentist Dr. Gregory Sawyer based out of Los Gatos, California has just completed the first A Soldier’s Smile case for a veteran who was in poor condition physically. His cardiologist had even told him that if he did not first get his teeth fixed he would not be able to provide him with the necessary medical attention he required to live. “The example of Dr. Sawyer’s case shows how important the mouth body connection is to healthcare” explains Dr. Sokolosky. “I look forward to making a difference in the life of a veteran who has dedicated so much for our country.”
Currently there are nearly 20 ACE dentists who are involved in the A Soldier’s Smile charity and who have volunteered to provide their experience and resources to help a veteran at no cost. As the Veterans Affairs hospitals and ACE work together to find more vets in need of dental care the charity will continue to grow and gain more coverage. You can expect to see the events televised on national TV shows such as Dr. Oz, Good Morning America and on local news shows.
