This week, we bring you #MissionAccomplishedMondays in honor of Memorial Day.
We remember. With remembering those who gave the ultimate sacrifice, we also remember those who struggle at home with the transition from war to civilian life.
Time for #MissionAccomplishedMondays… Dr. Matthew Pavlovich!
Seattle dentist, Dr. Matthew Pavlovich of Pavlovich Dental honored Vietnam veteran, Leslie Strothers, with an implant supported lower denture as well as relining his existing upper denture!
The generosity that Dr. Pavlovich has shown Leslie comes through in Leslie’s smile and has restored his confidence in chewing again. It has also shown Leslie that his service and sacrifices during war time are appreciated and not forgotten. Leslie is a Navy veteran who was deployed during the Vietnam War on aircraft carrier the USS Hancock between 1960-63. He was a Boiler Tender for a year and was then boat coxing (shuttling enlisted to shore and back to the ship). After his return from the war, things were tough with his marriage which resulted in a divorce. Leslie worked hard all his life at Lockheed, and later as a plumber, raising 2 boys and 2 girls. Leslie is battling some health issues and feels especially grateful to Dr. Pavlorich and E4V to have this excellent dental care. He would also like to recognize and thank the staff as well! They are such a great team!
We provide opportunities for dentists across the country to give back to just one combat veteran in their private offices. Please help spread the word to all dentists so they can partner with us to honor our combat veterans. Presently, we have many opportunities for dentists in California and Arizona. Be like Dr. Pavlovich and change the life of a combat veteran!
Time for #MissionAccomplishedMondays… Dr. Maxwell Johnson!
Tucson dentist, Dr. Maxwell Johnson of Oracle Family Dental in Arizona, joined E4V in 2015. After taking care of Vietnam veteran, David Paine, Dr. Johnson requested to take care of a veteran each month. The comprehensive dental care provided has been reported to change these veterans' outlook on their futures. Community members, like Dr. Johnson, are stepping up to show them that they are not forgotten during their struggles and that we appreciate the sacrifices they made during war time. Dr. Johnson has also recruited specialists and dental labs he works with to assist in completing the free comprehensive dental care for the veterans he has treated. Patient comfort starts with the front office and continues in the back, so we recognize and thank the staff as well! They are such a great team!

The goal of our blog is to keep everyone updated on what Everyone for Veterans has been working on.
Currently, our intern, Maddee, is working on a mission to find more dentists to connect to combat veterans. If you know of any dentists who want to give back, please contact us at
