We are kicking off a new series called #MissionAccomplishedMondays! This series will celebrate the wonderful dentists all around the nation that have helped a combat veteran in their area. We are always looking for more dentists -- please message us for more details!
Bellevue Periodontist, Dr. C.R. Anderegg, has been an amazing supporter of combat veterans and his involvement with E4V. He honored Vietnam Veteran, Steve Pike, with the gift of multiple extractions, bone grafts and dental implants to help restore his smile!
Of course, the staff is a huge part in helping the veteran feel comfortable coming into the dental office. Steve was deployed to Vietnam for a year and was an Infantry Point Man (the leading soldier in a unit advancing through hostile or unsecured territory) in the jungle for almost 6 months. Returning stateside, he was not received well by the U.S., but was fortunate to have great family support. He has challenges with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), but handles it. He was diagnosed with throat cancer in 2015, but has had chemo and things are looking good. This dental treatment was just what he needed to heighten his spirits!
Thank you Dr. Anderegg, Pat, Midge, Selena, and Marla (not shown)!
Be like Dr. Anderegg and be the change in the life of a combat veteran!
The goal of our blog is to keep everyone updated on what Everyone for Veterans has been working on.
