Dr. West believes the most important function of the dental office is the patient experience. He and the staff strive to be thorough and to treat the patient completely as a whole. There are many choices when deciding on any caregiver. The most important task is finding someone who listens and understands the patient and their needs. Dr. West believes this is only achieved through educating his patients and helping them to overcome their fears.
One of the ways Dr. West gives back is as a proud member of the Adopt A Vet Program helping Vets in need. Dr. West donates full treatment as needed to help our Vets begin the healing process from the inside out.
Launched in 2010, the Adopt a Vet Dental Program (AAVD) provides pro bono dental care to Northern Nevada’s low-income veterans who are in critical need. Although most of these veterans fought bravely for us in the front lines, they do not qualify for treatment at the VA Dental Clinic. What’s more, they do not have dental insurance, and average a humble income of $900 a month. AAVD merged with Northern Nevada Dental Health in 2013 with the goal of combining our efforts and continuing to improve the lives of veterans in need of dental care. In the four years of our programs existence, we have helped over 540 Veterans, receiving over $1.6 Million in dental care services by our pro bono providers.
VA Dental policies are so restrictive, only about 5% of our local veterans qualify for care. With over 30,000 local veterans this leaves a shocking majority of them without dental care.
The goal of our program is to help low-income veterans who simply cannot afford to see a dentist. Because they lack dental treatment, many face poor overall health, self-esteem issues, or cannot secure work. Most of these veterans do not have a family or support system, which forces them to rely on help from their community.
