Nominate a Veteran Foundation

Vernon’s annual campaign to provide preventative dental care for veterans.

Thank you to all the nominators of the 2020 Nominate a Veteran Campaign.  The recipient of the no-charge preventative dental care appointment will be contacted shortly.

Personal Motivation for the Campaign
In my career in the dental field (2001- present) I have come to understand that veterans, upon discharge from the Canadian Forces, often have limited or no access to dental services with the benefits available to them from Veteran Affairs.  I, in no way fault Veterans Affairs, as there are many needs that they must address and oral health seems to slip through the preverbal cracks.  I feel this is unjust considering the service they have provided to us, their fellow Canadians.  It is for these reasons that I initiated the Nominate a Veteran Campaign as I find myself compelled to demonstrate my appreciation for these deserving members of our community.
