BOISE, Idaho — Boise Prosthodontics in Meridian is looking for nominees for its annual "Nominate a Veteran" program which aims to help veterans smile again.

This is the third year for the program and submissions to nominate a veteran are open.

"We can give them a smile that they haven't had for a while, and they're just super grateful somebody cared enough to do that," said Dr. Michael Gurney. "Our team loves it, I think it's their favorite week to work. That's why we want to keep growing it and building it and just having opportunity to share that with each other, but also these wonderful people."

Nominations are sent in and the winners will receive a set of dentures, at no cost. To qualify, nominees must have served in the armed forces for at least two years.

Nominations can be submitted until 5 p.m. on February 28. Winners will be announced on March 15.
