The state is partnering with dental clinics provide dental hygiene services to Maine veterans who are unable to afford them.

The Maine Bureau of Veterans’ Service said it’s working with 22 clinics to provide the service.

The Maine Veterans’ Dental Network, which the veterans bureau oversees, received a $100,000 grant from Northeast Delta Dental to provide the care to veterans.

Veterans who want to participate in the program must provide a copy of their discharge papers to the clinic. The veterans bureau can help them acquire the papers if they don’t have a copy.
The program runs through April 29.
