Relaxation Dental Specialties to offer free services to active military and veterans at Salida location

Relaxation Dental Specialties based in Breckenridge will be holding a “Smiles for FREEdom” event at their Salida location on Nov. 10, offering free dental services to U.S. veterans and active service members for the entire day.

Services will include cleanings, fillings, crowns, extractions, cancer screenings and more on a case-by-case basis. Under no circumstances will veterans or active service members be billed.

“My freedom and protection is based on their willingness to serve and we want to thank them for it,” said owner Dr. Nicholas Brown, whose father served on a submarine during the Vietnam War. “On that day, it is our goal to provide a compassionate, gentle, caring environment, followed by the best dental care available. We will spoil them rotten in the office, then send them home with dental hygiene kits.”

In addition to the staff at the Salida location, Dr. Jason Hansen from the Breckenridge location will be in attendance. Hansen is an expert in oral systems, TMJ disorder and Botox and Juvederm injections.

“This event is an exciting opportunity to help out the people who serve this country,” said Hansen, whose father served in the Navy Dental Corps during the Vietnam War. “Access to quality dental care is not something that everyone has and makes a huge difference in a person’s long-term health. Both Dr. Brown and I are delighted to be able to help these people.”

Appointments will be made on a first-come, first-served basis, and are currently open for scheduling. To schedule an appointment, call the Salida practice at 719-539-3145, or email Participants must bring a valid military ID at the time of the appointment.
