Hope For VeteransNorth County Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry is proud to sponsor North County Veterans Stand Down.
Committed to Changing Lives
As veterans and families of veterans ourselves at North County Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry, we are so grateful for the sacrifices that veterans have made in the service of our country. So when we learned about the North County Veterans Stand Down, we couldn’t wait to get on board.
Stand Down is a military term that indicates when a unit moves out of a combat area and back to base camp to rest and recuperate. The North County Stand Down aims to do the same thing--offer rest and rehabilitation to veterans across the North County area at a special 4 day event held at the Green Oak Ranch in Vista, CA every October.
While there, veterans in need can enjoy food and shelter, hot showers, clothing, counseling, and a host of other services like medical, dental, legal, and even grooming and veterinary care for their pets, all completely free.
It’s a special retreat where Vets can get the physical, mental, and emotional support they need and deserve.

Free Dental Care For Veterans In Need
As part of the North County Stand Down, the team at NCCID donates an entire day of work to participating veterans. Participants in the Stand Down simply sign up for an appointment while at Green Oak Ranch, and receive free transportation from the ranch straight to our nearby office.
Whether vets need a simple cleaning or more complex treatment, Dr. Henninger and the NCCID team work to meet their needs so they can return to their lives out of pain and are able to do everything from eat their favorite foods to feel more confident while applying for jobs.
We’re Vets Ourselves
After graduating from dental school, Dr. Henninger completed a one-year residency at Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton, and then served as the only dentist on the USS Boxer in the U.S. Navy, where he deployed in support of Operation Enduring Freedom in 2009.
