First of all, THANK YOU VERY MUCH for doing this great deed to help us veterans. This was my first time to come to your clinic and I was very impressed by the friendliness of your staff and the excellent service I received. (I'm sure all of the other Vets feel the same I hope). The Dr's and professional staff were very professional and told me what I need to do pertaining to my teeth and gums. Thank you again. I got there at 8:40 and was surprised by the number of veterans already lined up under the tent. I was greeted very courteous and prompt, as I also brought my paperwork already filled out with me. Coffee, doughnuts and bagels was a very nice surprise as well.

I was properly taken care of, everyone was pleasant and it was a good experience. It was a free visit for Veterans but it was not complicated in any way. Looking forward to visiting you again.

Thank You!

Stellar service both in the office and community

Although this is a large practice, you never feel like just a number. From the minute you walk in the door, you are greeted and your care is very personal as all of the staff greet you by name with a smile. The hygienists and doctors are good with adults and children and as parents juggling work, school and extracurricular activities for two young boys I am appreciative that I can make appointments together. Also, as a local in the community I praise the staff at Brickworks for their ongoing involvement in health and wellness through participation in hosting  community events. I would highly recommended Brickworks Dental for their high quality medical care and friendly staff!


About Us

Veteran Smile Day

After leaving the military in 2007 for private practice in New Jersey, U.S. Navy veteran Dr. Deryck Pham always knew he wanted to give back to his fellow veterans. So in 2012, Dr. Pham and his team at Brickworks Dental opened their doors on a cold Saturday in November to provide local veterans all aspects of dentistry, free of charge. The motto is “Serving Those Who’ve Served”. The Veterans Smile Day Foundation was created to help raise awareness and recruit more dental professionals to join the mission. Over the last six years, we have grown nationwide to include private dental offices, dental schools, hospitals, and numerous dental societies. Thank you to our corporate sponsors – Henry Schein, Ultradent, and Proctor & Gamble – for supporting this worthy endeavor : to one day allow every veteran across the U.S. to receive free dental care at least once a year. We hope to have you join us this year!
