VETSmile Celebrates First Year

The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs is celebrating the one-year anniversary of VETSmile. Launched by the Center for Care and Payment Innovation, VETSmile is a pilot program that collaborates with community dental care partners to help connect veterans to dental care. The program works with providers at VA medical facilities who discuss oral health needs with the veterans and then refer them to a partnering dental facility. Want to get involved?
