Operation Dental Care

 Operation Dental Care addressses the dental care needs of area veterans who do not have private dental insurance and do not meet eligibility requirements for dental care through the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). It started on a trial basis in February 2016 and we soon found that the need to make it a formal program existed. Through this program, veterans can be seen for both emergency and comprehensive care. Since February 2016, 50 veterans have been seen and approximately $64,000 worth of treatment has been provided, with new veterans being added regularly.  

In a collaboration with the Fox Valley Veterans Council (FVVC), co-pays are waived when care is initiated through the council. Area veterans choosing not to go through the FVVC can still receive care at TCD, but co-pays will be charged according to household income.
