SHERMAN, Texas (KTEN) — You're never fully dressed without a smile, and on Tuesday, dozens of veterans left a Sherman dentist's office with a new smile on their face.

"We decided to take care of our veterans," said Dr. Sam Nechamkin. "There's actually a huge huge need for it."

Grayson County Commissioners Court unanimously voted to declare Tuesday as Keep Veterans Smiling Day. Nechamkin started the special day of service seven years ago.

"[It's] something that they've been dealing with a long time, but haven't been able to get taken care of," Nechamkin said.

"I came in here with a broken tooth, and they fixed it perfect," said U.S. Army veteran Jim Counce. "I went to other places with the broken tooth and they wanted a fortune. He's doing a great thing... he really is."

Any veteran could come and get free dental work, and Nechamkin's office saw 67 grateful veterans on Tuesday.

"So thankful for Dr. Sam; he does a fantastic thing for the veterans," Counce said. "Sometimes I get a little mushy about it, especially when somebody does something for the veterans."

T-shirts for Keep Veterans Smiling were offered, with profits going towards the KVS fund. For more on the day and how you can get involved, visit the keep veterans smiling website..
