Duneland Dental hosted its 5th year of providing free dental services to the Veterans throughout the area earlier this month. Many veterans were grateful and appreciative for the services that were offered. Dr. Christine Faron was host of this event.

She would like to thank everyone who donated their services and dedication that made it possible to do this again for the 5th year: Dr. Helen Kirscher, of Valparaiso, Dr. Bonni Boone, of South Bend, Dr. Melinda Fried, of Dyer, Dr. Anthony Griglione, of Valparaiso and Dr. John Frazee, of Schererville. Also, thank you to all the assistants, hygienists, nurse practitioners from the CVS Minute Clinic, as well as everyone from IUN that participated. Thank you to Patrick Broderick with Henry Schein, Mike Carmola with Dentsply and Mandi Patrick with Proctor & Gamble for donating the supplies. Every veteran went home with an oral healthcare package. Thanks to George’s Gyros Spot here in Chesterton for donating all the food to the doctors and staff for lunch the last five years. Thank you to Jewel’s in Chesterton who also donated food.
