Two area dental practices are giving back to service men and women by offering free dental care to military veterans Saturday, October 21st.

Brickworks Dental in Mays Landing and Marmora Family Dental in Upper Township 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 ONE DAY ONLY on Saturday, October 21st, 2023 from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. 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.
