Hires Dental Care is lucky to have the opportunity to serve our veterans! Once a year, Dr. J Eric Hires and his staff honor our Toledo Area Veterans with free basic dental care. This years event was held on Friday, May 17, 2013. Next years event is tentatively scheduled for May 16, 2014.
Our fine service men and women were treated to one of the following: filling, extraction or cleaning. Stars, Stripes and Smiles, in the past four years, has provided 342 patients with $82,000 in dental care treatment. We hope to add to our capacity, treating more Veterans, in years to come.
This event has been made possible by the generosity of Hires Dental Care and its community partners. Supporters of Stars, Stripes and Smiles include: Hylant Insurance Group, SMB Construction, Optometrist Dr. Tracey Needham, ProMedica, Chick-fil-a Talmadge & Sylvania, Waterford Bank, Sylvania Vet, Collingwood Water, Barry Bagels, Komet, Henry Schein and Vitos Pizza.
