Operation Stand Down, April 2023

Our event at Indiana University Northwest Hygiene Clinic was a great success! We were able to screen 35 military veterans to assess their dental needs and get them assigned to a local volunteer dentist for treatment. Thank you to the doctors that conducted the complimentary exams that day: Dr. Steve Holm, Dr. Mark Mihalo, Dr. Fred Rather, Dr. Bruce Smith, Dr. Herb Yekel and Dr. Kevin Thornsberry. Special thanks to all the IUN staff and students that ensured a smooth transition from waiting room to imaging stations to the exam areas. We appreciate you all.
