ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) -- Dental Group of Rockford will offer free dental care for stateline area veterans on Saturday, November 23.

The services come from Dr. Yong Woo Lee and Dr. Ashley Tsiao. The Dental Group of Rockford team will honor local veterans as part of Veteran’s Free Dentistry Day, which is dedicated to providing free dental care to the growing number of veterans without dental insurance.

Cleaning, filling, and extraction services will be provided for veteran patients on Saturday, Nov. 23. Veterans can visit between 8 a.m. and noon at 3065 North Perryville Road, Suite 125 in Rockford.

Patients will be served on a first-come, first-serve basis. Veterans are asked to bring a valid form of identification such as a Veteran’s I.D., a license with Veteran’s stamp or DD214.

“We understand that many veterans in our community and across the nation haven’t been to the dentist for a long period of time. Some veterans don’t have the financial means,” said Dr. Lee. “This event is a great opportunity for us to share our time and resources with the men and women who have dedicated their lives to our country.”

“We are incredibly thankful for everything these veterans have sacrificed,” said Dr. Tsiao. “Through this event, we hope to honor and support our local veterans and encourage them to adopt an ongoing oral care regimen.”
