The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs reports that it provided dental care for 577,000 veterans during fiscal year 2019, which seems like a huge number until compared with the approximately 9 million veterans who receive services from the VA and the 19,892,000 veterans who were on the government’s roster as of September 2017.

Dean Ronnie Myers shares how Touro Dental Health, the clinical training facility at the school’s Valhalla campus, has been opening wide its newly expanded clinic to veterans not receiving oral health care from the VA.
