Young visits veterans during mobile dental clinic

Submitted Photo State Sen. Catharine Young recently visited with veterans at the Mayville VFW who were receiving free dental care through the University at Buffalo’s “Dentistry Smiles on Veterans” Mobile Dental Clinic. Sen. Young has championed the mobile dental initiative as a way to expand dental care to underserved rural areas in the Southern Tier. She secured $372,000 in funding in the 2018-19 state budget to support the mobile dental van, which serves children as well as a growing number of veterans and seniors. Approximately 4,000 patients in total receive services each year.
