It’s National Toothache Day, and where would we be without the VA dentists, hygienists, dental assistants and lab techs who help put smiles back on the faces of Veterans every day?
A dentist at VA does all the same work you might expect from a dentist anywhere: cavity fillings, crowns, dentures, implants, teeth extractions, root canals, exams, scans and more. The difference at VA, though, is that we empower our dentists to deliver the highest quality health care in a time frame that works for Veterans and providers.
That’s because our mission isn’t about the bottom line. Instead, we hold ourselves to a higher standard: “I CARE.” By caring for our patients with integrity, commitment, advocacy, respect and excellence, we define who we are as VA employees and how we will fulfill our mission of service to Veterans.
In turn, VA rewards all our employees with access to better benefits that make a difference in the way we see our work. Whether it’s promoting a better work-life balance for you and your loved ones or taking your career wherever you want to go with one unrestricted national license, you can rest assured that we want you to be as happy as you make our Veterans.
