Free Dental Services for Holocaust Survivors:

The Alpha Omega-Henry Schein Cares Holocaust Survivors Oral Health Program is accepting applications for free dental work to Holocaust survivors in the greater Milwaukee area. Since 2015, the program has provided hundreds of Holocaust survivors across the United States with free oral care. Applicants must be recognized by Claims Conference as being a Holocaust survivor and meet certain financial and eligibility requirements. Priority is given to eligible persons based on the need to eliminate painful oral conditions, restoration of function and lack of dental insurance coverage.
