Stars, Stripes & Smiles 2015 was a huge success thanks to our many volunteers, donors, and the 117 veterans we performed services on that day! That equals about $27,600 in free dental care!
For the past six years, Dr. J Eric Hires of Hires Dental Care and his staff extend their appreciation to Toledo-area veterans by offering a day of free dental care. Since its founding, Stars, Stripes and Smiles has provided 565 patients with over $133,000 in dental care treatment. We hope to add to this number each and every year!
“Now more than ever, there are people out there who need dental services, but have no means to afford them – whether they are out of a job or 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,” ~ Dr. Hires.
