ACE Dental and Montel Williams Taking Care of Our Veterans
Last Updated on Wednesday, 9 November 2011 10:46 Written by Dental Education Blog Wednesday, 9 November 2011 10:46
November 11th 2011 is Veterans Day and we should all take a moment to thank our veteran’s service to our great country. In light of Veteran’s Day and the kickoff of the recent A Soldiers Smile event we would like to bring some attention to this great cause of helping underprivileged vets get the dental care they deserve. It seems that many veterans have claimed that they have attempted to get dental care at VA hospitals and have been turned down for various reasons. It seems that there are laws that have restrictions on providing health care for veterans based on their condition in or out of service and their income level.
Instead of waiting for the government to solve the problems that lie within the system instead ACE and Montel Williams are taking proactive measures to help provide our troops with the dental care they need. The ACE A Soldiers Smile event is currently being endorsed nationwide by Montel Williams, himself a former serviceman, and building traction throughout various national television networks. In addition to providing free restorative and cosmetic dentistry treatments to select troops, other dentists in the ACE association are being encouraged to offer discount dental care to troops and their families.
ACE dentists would like to thank all of our troops who have served and are serving in our US armed forces. We truly appreciate your dedication to our country and want you to know you have our full support.

ACE is proud to announce that Montel Williams will be endorsing ACE and the upcoming A Soldiers Smile event. Montel will be appearing at the upcoming ACE conference in early November and discussing his involvement with ACE and the dentists. Initially ACE contacted Montel because of his recognized goodwill towards our soldiers and his storied military background. In addition to involvement with the troops, Montel is also recognized for his Emmy Award winning television show, as an inspirational speaker, author, wellness entrepreneur and health advocate.
The Montel Williams show was perhaps Montel’s most recognizable accolade, having been aired for 17 years with national syndication and over 3,500 recorded shows. He won several awards for the show that focused on discussing key social issues with ordinary people who coped with extraordinary situations.
Currently Montel focuses on promotion of products and services which are aimed at helping individuals live better physically, emotionally, financially, and spiritually. Through his Living Well with Montel product line he has developed such products as the Healthmaster Emulsifier, Pressure Cooker, Rotisserie, Ab Coaster, TravelSafe kits and Skincare Line.
Montel is also known for giving back to the community through his various efforts over the years and it is because of his own military service that ACE asked him to be part of the Soldiers Smile event. Montel already visits injured troops at military hospitals and has become active with organizations that give back to families of the troops. He even took a trip to Afghanistan to visit US troops and show his support for their service to our country.
In addition to the above, Montel also established the Montel Williams MS Foundation after being diagnosed to help further the research and study on the disease. ACE finds itself lucky to have built a relationship with such an outstanding individual both in his celebrity and personal life and looks forward to helping our troops and the public at large learn more about the dentistry treatments available to promote good oral health.
