Wilson Martino Dental offers active military and veterans free dental care on Oct. 13

What would it be like to miss your child’s first birthday, their first steps or their high school graduation?  What if you could not talk with your spouse or family for weeks at a time?  What if you didn’t know if a family member was safe?   For most of us, these situations are rare, however, for those in our military and their family members they are part of their daily life. 

“Our men and women of our Armed Forces make great personal sacrifices in order to secure and protect our freedoms,” said Dr. Robert Martino, owner of the 7 Wilson Martino Dental offices and a 2022 Freedom Day USA business participant.  “Their families have endured hardships and some have given all they have so that we may live in peace – free to pursue our dreams.  We joined Freedom Day USA to say ‘Thank You’ for their sacrifices and for our freedom, and to give them a Day of Free!”

On October 13, 2022 local businesses will join in the annual Freedom Day USA event.  Freedom Day USA is when businesses across the Country provide a Free Service, Product, Gift, etc… to the members of our military and their immediate families, along with Veterans. 

Locally, Wilson Martino Dental’s office has partnered with Freedom Day USA to present Complimentary Dental Care, including: teeth cleaning, exam, x-rays, fluoride and any necessary same-day work their dentists can complete to our Veterans and our Active Military, along with the immediate family of Active Military personnel.

You can reach them at 1-877-645-3943 for an appointment. 

A complete list of local participating businesses and the services they are providing can be found at www.FreedomDayUSA.org. To learn more about this National Thank You Movement or to sign your business up as a participant for future events, you can visit www.FreedomDayUSA.org or the event’s Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/FreedomDayUsa.  The services provided to our country by these ladies and gentlemen are very much appreciated.
