Bowling Green dental office provides free cleanings to veterans

BOWLING GREEN, Ky (WBKO) -- In an effort to honor those who have served our country, one Bowling Green dental office offered veterans the opportunity to receive free dental services today.

Bowling Green Family Dentistry employees worked together to give the vets the choice of one free cleaning, filling or extraction treatment today from 10 A.M. through 4 P.M. as a way to honor the men and women in Bowling Green and surrounding areas.

The veterans receiving treatment appreciated the services and support they were provided.

Andy Roebuck, who nears his 18th year in the military, was one of the vets who took advantage of the free treatment. He said, "We still have members that live in the local community, not just active duty members but national guard, reserves, they live everywhere. Seeing the community come together and take care of them is a great thing."

The office scheduled 30 appointments in advance, but today's walk-in's boosted that number, as nearly 50 patients were treated at today's event.
