This weekend you can help veterans improve their smiles at a fundraiser for the Adopt a Vet Dental Program.

"We have an epidemic of unattended oral care disease among our veterans. Only a small- shockingly small percentage can use the dental clinic at the VA. There's about 5% of 30,000 are the only ones that can use it," says Linda Haigh.

On Saturday, the Washoe Republican Women are holding a fundraiser for the dental clinic at the Peppermill Resort Hotel.
