NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Danica Patrick has joined with Got Your 6 and Aspen Dental for the third annual Healthy Mouth Movement. Their”Smile 4 Vets” social media campaign kicked off last week in Atlanta at Centennial Olympic Park, where Patrick appeared with the MouthMobile – a 42-ft dental office on wheels that provides free dental care to veterans across the country.

The MouthMobile will visit a total of 30 cities in 2016 (the full calendar is at the end of this post). Last year, the program provided $2.8 million dollars in free dental care to more than 4,000 veterans.

The Smile4Vets initiative works this way: people can share their smiles with hashtags #Smile4Vets and #Sweepstakes on Twitter, Instagram or at Smile4Vets.com as a salute to veterans nationwide. For every smile shared, Aspen Dental will donate $1 to Got Your 6. Aspen Dental will display the photos shared on Smile4Vets.com.

As a thank you for supporting our veterans, everyone who shares their smile will be entered for a chance to win free dental care for a special veteran in their life, plus a trip to the Michigan race in August 2016, including an opportunity to meet Healthy Mouth Movement ambassador and NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Danica Patrick.

Got Your 6 is a collective impact campaign that works to bridge the military-civilian divide. Combining the reach and resources of the entertainment industry with the expertise and commitment from veteran-focused non-profit and government partners, the campaign works to advance the conversation in America so veterans and their families are seen as leaders and civic assets who will invigorate our communities.
