Serving the Copperas Cove Community
Community Dental Day
Fossum Dental Group hosted their 5th annual Community Dental Day in February of 2017 treating 105 folks from surrounding communities that normally cannot afford basic dental care. This concept was born in 2013 when our team wanted make a difference in people's lives. So we did what we do best, provided caring dentistry! We offered patients one service, a cleaning, fillings or extractions and in many cases preforming multiple services on patients both old and young. All for free. We could not have done this without the support of our gracious team and our community. We are looking forward to our next community project.

Oral Cancer Awareness Month
Benchmark Family Dental is committed to educating our community about the risks of oral cancer and believes that early detection saves live. Each April MHFD hosts a free oral cancer screening event to spread awareness about this silent killer. Each year close to 43,250 Americans will be diagnosed with oral cancer. It will cause over 8,000 deaths, killing roughly 1 person per hour, 24 hours per day. Of those 43,250 newly diagnosed individuals, only slightly more than half will be alive in 5 years. Early detection may save your life. Learn More.
