Local veteran receiving free dental care

Posted: Updated:

SPRINGFIELD - A local U.S. Army Veteran will receive needed dental care thanks to a community-giving initiative at a Springfield dental office.

Officials say Sgt. Justin Bodine's dental services will be covered as part of Aspen Dental's "Healthy Mouth Movement," in addition to help from Dr. Rahul Prakash.  During a recent appointment at a Springfield-area office, Sgt. Bodine learned that he had to have 12 teeth removed as a result of tooth pain and periodontal disease.

Sgt. Bodine is scheduled to receive the services during an appointment in Springfield on August 20.  He served eight years in the U.S. Army, which included time in Iraq and South Korea.
