NJDA SENIOR-DENT PROGRAM

The “Veterans Smile Day” mission is to provide free dental care and support to our military veterans as our small way of thanking them for their service. Our hope is that in the process, veteran’s will find a permanent dental home for themselves and their families. 
Smiles For Our Heroes will return to Zufall Health on Saturday, November 5, 2022. Sponsored by Delta Dental NJ, NJDA, ADHA, and NJDAA. Services will be available at two Zufall sites: Dover (18 West Blackwell Street) and Morristown (4 Atno Ave). Eligible veterans will be provided free dental services including exams and cleanings, oral cancer assessments, x-rays, fillings, and dentures.
The NJDA and the ADA are proud to support this program spearheaded by our strategic partner Dental Lifeline Network (DLN).  As a member of our community, please consider volunteering and donate comprehensive treatment to at least one patient with special needs each year. Volunteering is easy and the patients come to your office.

The NJDA Senior-Dent Program operates to increase the access of Senior Citizens to dental care in NJ and has been a well-utilized and successful program since its inception. A participating dentist must offer an eligible patient a minimum courtesy reduction of 15% from the standard fee charged on all dental services.
