Shoreline Dental Studio is pleased to announce that it will be hosting its 2nd Annual Smiles for FREEdom event on Friday November 9th. Local veterans are eligible to receive free dental services will be screened and diagnosed during examinations in the month of October on a first come first serve basis and will then be scheduled to return on the 10th of the November to received comprehensive dental care.

Last year Shoreline Dental Studio was able to provide over $44,000 in free dental care for 26 local Veterans. Veterans in attendance ranged from as far south as San Diego and as far north as San Pedro, and spanned in age from 24 to 92.

Interested Veterans may contact Shoreline Dental Studio at 949-498-4110 in the month of October to schedule a complimentary consultation.

The day will include a brief opening ceremony at 7:45am that will include words from Dr. Kristen Ritzau, and the singing of our National Anthem.

Shoreline Dental is very grateful to have partnered with several local, dental specialists for patients who require more complex dental treatment including endodontic work and oral surgery and many of those patients have already received care.

The Smiles For FREEdom event is being held in honor of the late Eugene Fournier, USMC Master Sergeant. Master Sergeant Fournier (‘Gene’) is the late grandfather of Dr Kristen Ritzau who opened Shoreline Dental Studio in 2012. Gene was first stationed here in the 1950’s and four generations later the family has remained here ever since.

“I feel very blessed to call San Clemente and this community my home,” said Dr Ritzau, “This is a small and practical way I can give back to local heroes and to continue a legacy of caring for people in this town that was started by my grandparents many years ago.”

Smiles for FREEdom is a nationwide 501c3 organization that was started in Reno, Nevada to aid, assist, and encourage local dental offices to provide free dental services to the veterans and service men and women in our Armed Forces.
