Hires Dental Care is honored to have the opportunity to serve our veterans! Once a year, Dr. J Eric Hires of Hires Dental Care and his staff extend their appreciation to our Toledo Area Veterans by offering a day of free dental care.
Our fine service men and women are treated to one of the following: filling, extraction or cleaning. Since its founding, Stars, Stripes and Smiles has provided 448 patients with $105,557 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. This year's supporters included Hylant Insurance Group, Heroes in Action, SMB Construction, Collingwood Water, Barry's Bagels, ProMedica, The Kroger Company, Komet, Henry Schein, Colgate, Waterford Bank, Tim Hortons, Vitos Pizza, Tony Paco's Café, Burger King, Bennett Management Corp., ToledoDJTom, H.O.T. Printing and Graphics, Toledo Mud Hens, and Bartz Viviano.
“Now more than ever, I know there are people out there that need dental services, but have no means to afford them – whether they are out of a job, or just don’t have dental insurance. Stars Stripes and Smiles is our way of giving back to the community, and helping our Veterans who have given so much to us,” notes Dr. Hires.
Next year's event will take place from 8 am to 4 pm on Friday, May 15, 2015 at Hires Dental Care, 3951 W Sylvania Avenue in Toledo, Ohio. For more information, please contact 419.475.6673.
We welcome volunteers, donations and participants.
