National Guard veterans returning from service in Iraq or Afghanistan are eligible for free dental services under a first-of-its kind program announced Tuesday.
The program is being run by the Department of Veterans Affairs
and University of North Carolina Hospitals.
It will give soldiers access to initial examinations, X-rays, teeth cleanings and other needs. They would be referred back to
their V-A medical centers for more complicated work.
National Guard members must enroll for the two-year benefit
within 90 days of their discharge from military service. The V-A says the program is the first of its kind in the nation.
