Van Buren Family Dentistry to Host Veteran’s Free Dentistry Day

In honor of Veteran’s Day, veterans in the Van Buren community and surrounding areas will have the opportunity to receive free dental services at Van Buren Family Dentistry on Wednesday, November 11.  

Dr. Kyle Catron and team at Van Buren Family Dentistry will be honoring and supporting local veterans as part of Veteran’s Free Dentistry Day, a day dedicated to providing free dental care to the growing number of veterans without dental insurance.

“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. Catron. “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.”

There is increasing evidence that links oral health to overall health and well-being. The signs and symptoms of over 100 medical conditions, including diabetes, HIV/AIDS, Lou Gehrig’s disease and oral cancer may first be detected through traditional oral examinations.

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

During Veteran’s Free Dentistry Day, cleanings, fillings and extractions will be provided per patient on Wednesday, November 11 between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. at 617 Fayetteville Rd in Van Buren. Patients will be accepted by appointment only. Following Arkansas’s COVID-19 protocol, patients will be asked to call the office upon arrival and remain in their cars until called to enter the building. Veterans are asked to please bring a valid form of Veteran’s Identification (Veteran’s I.D., license with Veteran’s stamp or DD214). For more information, please call 479-474-9696 or visit

“It’s very gratifying to see the impact that events like Veteran’s Free Dentistry Day can have on the life of one person. We are grateful for this amazing opportunity to show our veterans how much their service means to us,” said Dr. Catron.
