I can’t believe it’s already November. From here til the end of the year, it’s a sprint. Our schedule fills up with people realizing their insurance benefits are about to expire. Holiday fever kicks in with Thanksgiving and Black Friday. Even before that though, every store is already decorating for Christmas and the debate on when to start playing holiday music starts to heat up. Unfortunately, because of the craziness of the holiday season, Veteran’s Day often gets over shadowed.
Veterans are near and dear to us at Dee for Dentist. From friends that serve, to spouses, and even our very own Dr. Browne who serves in the reserves, we are all touched by those we love who volunteer to protect our great nation.
As a provider of needed health services, we are privileged to show our appreciation for our Veterans through programs like our Fills Good initiative and most recently Freedom Day. If you don’t know, for the last 2 years and every year moving forward, Dee for Dentist participates in a nationwide day of service known as Freedom Day.
Freedom Day USA is America’s Largest Military Thank You Event! One day each year, businesses say “Thank You” by providing a token of appreciation (Free Services, Free Gifts, Special Offers and More) to Active Military and their Immediate Family and to Veterans who visit their business on event day. This is our way of showing you how grateful we are for your service and for the sacrifices you have made for our freedom. In fact, Freedom Day USA is a “DAY OF FREE, FOR A LIFETIME OF FREEDOM!” – from www.freedomdayusa.org
This past October, we had the honor of treating 13 veterans with a variety of dental services. This is one of those days where we really get to enjoy doing what we do for a group of people that truly deserve it. Thank you, thank you, thank you to all of the brave men and women that serve in our armed forces!
Before I close, I wanted to share our appreciation to some special people that helped make Freedom Day happen. Thank you to the doctors and staff at the VA, especially Dr. Mylene Vicuna for sending veterans our way. Thank you to Bob Martin from Veterans Care Charity for spreading the word as well. Thank you to Tyler, Drew, & the entire Patterson Las Vegas team for donating their time and dental supplies. Thank you to Bobby from Kerr for stopping by with equipment and materials as well. Finally, thank you to our good friend Rene over at Halal Guys Las Vegas for keeping us fueled for the day.
