Bay Oral Surgery is proud to share an update and news story on their Salute To Smiles program launched last year.  The restorative portion of each patient’s care plan is nearly complete.  All the veterans are extremely thankful for the dental care they received, and Bay Oral Surgery is in the initial planning stages for Salute to Smiles 2016!
