Two area dental practices are giving back to service men and women by offering free dental care to military veterans Saturday, October 29th.

Brickworks Dental in Mays Landing and Seaview Dental Arts in Galloway will perform x-rays, exams, cleanings, fillings, root canals, and extractions at no cost to vets. All veterans are eligible with just a military I.D. or proof of service.


Services are first-come, first-serve at both locations on Saturday, October 29th, 2022 from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. (rescheduled from Oct. 1, 2022), but making an appointment in advance will guarantee treatment. Emergency cases will be treated first.

In the United States, over 85% of military veterans do not qualify for any kind of dental care through the Veterans Administration. Dr. Deryck Pham, of Brickworks Dental, was a Lieutenant in the US Navy, serving a tour as a combat dentist during Operation Iraqi Freedom on the ground in the deserts of Iraq.  After leaving the military and joining private practice, he has a new mission – to help his fellow veterans.
