COVID precautions in place, NFDC once again comes through for vets
For the third year in a row Newaygo Family Dental Care stepped up for veterans and delivered a day of checkups, cleaning, x rays, fillings and most of all a solid display of appreciation and respect for about 3 dozen former servicemen.
Free of charge.
This display of compassion and service to others the Drs Nelson (Dennis and Ross) and their staff perform each year is inspiring to say the least and even more so taking place during these dicey days of 2020.
Hygienist Trisha Tramper, part of the NFDC team who helped provide these services, seemed to echo the sentiments of her colleagues.
“Being in the midst of a global pandemic, I was really sad to think that we would possibly be missing out on our annual veteran's day.
“Although we are doing things a little different this year, I'm very happy we were still able to make today happen! Every year I'm amazed at the turnout and how thankful our local veterans are to have us.”
“This is my 2nd time here,” said Veteran William Hall. “Awesome program to help veterans get services they need.”
We wholeheartedly agree with Mr. Hall as to the awesomeness A lot of people talk about doing more for veterans. Others simply show how it's done.
On Friday Newaygo Family Dental Care puts its humanity into action.
And we’re a better community for it.
