As the Sprint Cup Series visits Michigan this weekend, Aspen Dental returns as the primary sponsor of Danica Patrick's #10 Chevy. Sunday's race marks the third of four events (also Charlotte in Oct) where Aspen Dental will serve as the primary sponsor on Patrick's racecar this season. In addition, Aspen Dental is an associate sponsor on the #10 Chevrolet for all non-primary races.
While Patrick's #10 Chevy will be blue and silver this weekend in Michigan, her car will also feature the names of more than 500 U.S. veterans. Aspen Dental dentists and teams from Maine to Washington – and hundreds of dental practices in between – volunteered their time and talents to give back to veterans in their communities during one, big "Day of Service" on Saturday, June 25.
As part of the Healthy Mouth Movement, a community-giving initiative which provides dental care for veterans, it marked the third annual "Day of Service," during which nearly 400 participating Aspen Dental offices donated more than $2.1 million dollars in dentistry in a single day, empowering more than 4,000 veterans with a healthy smile. Aspen Dental will also host five veterans and their guests as VIPs for Sunday's race at the 2-mile Michigan track.
In addition to the festivities in Michigan, Aspen Dental Management, Inc., recently announced it will be giving 1,000 veterans and guests the opportunity to be honored with a special VIP experience at the upcoming Sprint Cup Series Bank of America 500 Oct. 8 in Charlotte in a celebration of service and support of access to dental care.
Beginning Aug. 29, veterans can visit www.Smile4YourService.com and sign up to attend the race and enjoy a one-of-a-kind experience as Aspen Dental will honor their selfless service to our country and bring attention to the fact that many unfortunately do not receive the dental care they desperately need and deserve.
