The Toothboss offering evaluation services for Veterans
South Weymouth-- The Toothboss, a dental practice owned and operated by Dr. Richard Wolfert, DMD at 1121 Main Street in South Weymouth, MA, was recently accepted as a dental provider for the Veterans Administration. The Toothboss, in coordination with the VA offices in Brockton and Boston, can provide free evaluation services for veterans on disability.
“We’re very excited to continue our involvement with the VA in providing dental services to vets,” said Dr. Wolfert, who served in the U.S. Navy in the 1980s and was also deployed in Iraq as part of the U.S. Army. “This gives veterans on the South Shore a local resource for evaluations and treatment.”
Dr. Wolfert, a retired Colonel from the U.S. Army National Guard has long been a proponent of free dental care for vets. In addition to the VA, he is also an approved provider for LHI. LHI is a subsidiary of OptumServe, the federal health services business of Optum and United Health Group. OptumServe provides health services and proven expertise to help federal agencies, including the Veteran’s Administration.
“After retiring from the National Guard in 2015, I was looking for ways to help vets. LHI and this program with the VA give me the opportunity to give back to the men and women who serve our country,” said Dr. Wolfert.
