On that day, our team will be providing servicemen and servicewomen with their choice of a free cleaning, filling, or extraction. Dr. David Miller, an oral surgeon and owner of Lake Oconee Oral Surgery and Dental Implant Center, will also be donating his time, along with his team, in order to help as many people as possible that day.

If you are interested in receiving treatment, be sure to call the office at 706-453-1333 for an appointment time.
