Local Los Alamitos dentist Dr. Seza Barsamian hosted her annual Veterans Day event on Thursday November 12, 2020 at her dental office located on 4022 Katella Ave., suite 206. In the city of Los Alamitos.
The office of Dr Barsamian provided free comprehensive dental exam , X-ray and regular dental cleaning along with dental hygiene supplies to local retired veteran who live in Los Alamitos, Seal Beach and Cypress area.
“Due to the pandemic, we were not sure if we could do it this year, we did not plan early and frankly we were apprehensive about it, but when veterans started calling the office asking if we are going to do it again this year, We couldn’t say no and didn’t turn away any veteran who called, all of them got an appointment. We knew them all since most of them we have met during the years prior, for most of them this is the only dental appointment they make once a year! “ said Dr Barsamian
Dr. Barsamian Office started this in 2014 and has been doing it since. This is their 7th consecutive year.
We do know that unless veterans are service connected or disabled that they do not get proper oral care,” said Dr Barsamian.
Veteran’s oral health is as important as overall healthcare. Preventive oral care could be a catalyst in helping to avoid a number of different health conditions. Without proper oral hygiene, bacteria can reach levels that might lead to oral infections, such as tooth decay and gum disease. Periodontal disease and other oral conditions might affect, be affected by, or contribute to various diseases and conditions.
