Veterans offered free dental care over holiday weekend
One local dentist is offering free dental care to veterans during the holiday weekend.
Doctor Michael Morley is providing services such as free exams, cleanings, and other services as part of the Illinois Dentists Salute program.
The statewide program is sponsored by the Illinois State Dental Society.
Morley said one of the best parts of the day has been just talking to the veterans.
"The veterans that we've met so far today have been amazing and their stories and their history and what allows them to be veterans, it's been fun to be with," Doctor Michael Morley shared.
This is the first year for the Illinois Dental Salute program and close to 300 dentists across the state participated.
