Free Dental Services for Vets
The Veterans Services Officer Dr. Michael Ellis is always seeking resources to assist Veterans.  He recently helped to establish a partnership between the University of Tennessee School of Dentistry and Alpha Omega Veterans Services along with Dr. Russell from the University of Tennesee's College of Dentistry. The VSO set up a meeting with both parties.  Now, Veterans who are enrolled in a program at Alpha Omega Veterans Services are currently being transported weekly from Alpha Omega to U.T. College of Dentistry to receive free weekly dental services (Examinations, Cleanings, and Treatment Plans).
