A local dentist is offering to give free dental work to veterans in the Hudson Valley.

Mel Mel Dental in Wappingers Falls announced on their Facebook page that they would be providing free dental work, with certain limitations, to veterans. The offer is good on Veterans Day, November 10 from 9am to 5pm.

Many businesses offer discounts and free items on Veterans Day to those who've served in the military. From free dinners to car washes, there are many veteran benefits that are promoted throughout the Hudson Valley each November. But, honestly, this is the first time we've heard of a dentist offering complementary dental work.

Reaction from Mel Mel Dental's Facebook followers was overwhelmingly positive, with many thanking the practice for offering up the free dental work to military members.

Veterans who are interested in taking advantage of the generous offer are asked to call the office and schedule an appointment while they're still available. The Wappingers Falls dentist is located at 1289 Route 9.
