As many of you know, dental care is not covered by VA medical and if you do not have dental insurance – or even if you do – dental care can be expensive.

Dental Lifeline offers dental care to veterans who meet one of the following criteria:

1) have a permanent disability; or

2) are over 65; or

3) have a chronic or serious illness

Go to Dental Life Line to find out more and to apply.
