GREEN BAY (NBC 26) -- One group is giving local veterans a reason to smile on Veterans Day - thanks to the charitable efforts of Bay Oral Surgery and Implant Center and other local dentists.

The doctors all participating in Salute to Smiles. The program covers the expenses for veterans who need dental procedures but could not afford them otherwise.

For one Vietnam veteran, it means a lot.

"Well it's great. They gave me my smile back. I didn't have it for about 5 years. I was very self-conscious,” said Bill Mathis.

The Salute to Smiles program has helped about thirty veterans over the past four years.
