SYRACUSE, NY – Dr. Joan Laura, a leading Syracuse cosmetic dentist, is hosting a special Veterans Day program in which she will provide dental care to veterans free of charge.
Dr. Laura, who operates Eastwood Dental Office, developed the Veterans Day program four years ago and has since treated dozens of veterans from all branches of the military with quality preventive and restorative dentistry. During the special program set for Nov. 11, veterans can select one free treatment at Eastwood Dental Office: a cleaning, filling or an extraction.
“This is my way of saying thank you to all the brave women and men who have served our country,” Dr. Laura said. “The community support is overwhelming. People donate food and some even donate money.”
The Syracuse Veterans Day event grows in popularity every year, and so far, Dr. Laura has treated more than 100 veterans during the special event. Dr. Laura has strong family ties to the military. He father served in the Korean War, and her grandfather served in World War I.
“Our veterans have given us so much, so I want to be able to help them in the best way I know how: with quality dental services,” Dr. Laura said. “I look forward to this day every year and am proud to help these incredible men and women.”
Dr. Laura practices out of her home, which has been in the family for five generations. She offers all-composite fillings, crowns, bridges and teeth-whitening treatments and crafts beautiful dentures for patients missing some of their teeth or all of their teeth. Dr. Laura has convenient hours for busy families and working professionals.
Dr. Laura also provides porcelain veneers to change the color, shape or size of teeth. Veneers can be used to completely remake a smile, or to cosmetically enhance one or multiple cracked, chipped or discolored teeth. Veneers can also be used as a substitute for orthodontic treatment – straightening teeth to perfection almost instantly. Dr. Laura’s background in design allows her to be especially artful when designing a new smile.
Dr. Laura earned a bachelor of fine arts degree in fashion design from Parsons School of Design – where she was named to the dean’s list – and then graduated cum laude from State University of New York Buffalo School of Dental Medicine. She has completed continuing education courses in cosmetic dentistry and root canals.
Dr. Laura is a member of the American Dental Association and New York State Dental Association. Dr. Laura is heavily involved in community service. She serves as a lay ecclesial minister and annually supports the local hospice facility Francis House.
Dr. Laura’s office is open Monday and Tuesday from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Wednesday and Thursday from 10:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.
