In order to commemorate Veteran’s Day, Putnam Dental Associates in Brewster will be changing the life of one lucky U.S. armed forces veteran whose smile is standing in the way of acclimating to civilian life with a full smile makeover (valued between $5,000 and $40,000).

WHY STARS & SMILES?

Are you a veteran that has overcome a great obstacle(s), only to find the last hurdle is the first thing people notice: YOUR SMILE? Do you find yourself being embarrassed by the way you look? Many people with poor teeth tend to hide their smile (or refuse to smile at all). It may keep them from having open and genuine relationships. It can be so devastating that the person becomes withdrawn or a loner. They may feel that their dental issues have prohibited them from advancing in their career or even getting a job. We understand this feeling of hopelessness. And we want to help change someone’s life. If this is you, read on.

WHAT IS STARS & SMILES?

Dr. Carl Ern and his team at Putnam Dental Associates believe in giving people confidence with the power of a perfect smile. Stars & Smiles is our way of giving back to those who have served our nation. Many simply cannot afford the treatment needed to create a healthy, beautiful smile. Many have simply given up hope. We developed this program to give one local veteran the confidence and security that comes with the ability to smile with confidence, something many take for granted.

WHO IS ELIGIBLE?

All veterans within a 50 mile radius of Putnam Dental Associates in Brewster, NY are invited to apply.
