    CHENEY, Wash. - Eastern Washington University's Dental Hygiene program donated services totalling more than $32,600 on its annual Smile for Veterans day in early March. Overall, EWU's dental hygiene students treated 62 veterans at the Riverpoint Dental Hygiene Clinic.

    For a $10 fee, veterans enrolled at area colleges who have no other dental coverage were allowed to make appointments.

    "This is a great way to give back and thank our veterans for serving our country" said Rebecca Stolberg, director of the EWU Dental Hygiene Program. "Eastern students took the lead in this project, and offered as much dental treatment as they could with the help of faculty, staff and volunteer Spokane dentists."

    Smiles for Veterans is part of an annual community service project for EWU dental hygiene students, who help with cleanings, x-rays and complete dental exams.
