Chicago – The American Association of Endodontists (AAE) is honoring its members who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces with an online tribute this Veterans Day.
“The AAE is proud and supportive of our members who have and are currently serving in our nation’s armed forces,” AAE President Dr. Keith V. Krell said. “This online tribute is a simple yet meaningful way for the Association to thank our military endodontists who save natural teeth and lives on and off the battlefield.”
On Veterans Day, the Association will publish a special commemorative graphic on social media highlighting the members who have served and issuing a call to action to our followers to “thank a veteran” they know by tagging them (or their practice) in the comments section of the post.
In addition to spotlighting the Association’s military members, the AAE is increasing awareness about dental benefits available to qualifying veterans by directing people to www.va.gov and www.willyouseeonevet.org – an organization that partners with dentists and specialty dentists like endodontists who donate dental care services.
