The Dental Advisory Board was created to assist WVRF in our journey to help our veterans with their critical care dental needs. The board is compiled of Florida based Dentists, a Dental Technician, and a Regional Dental Office Manager. The Dental Advisory Board has been afforded an opportunity to provide expertise and support to our organizational performance and services to our veterans.
