Helping Make a Difference

Recently, Dr. Fred Norkin was one of three dental professionals honored at the 12th annual Wounded Veterans Relief Fund (WVRF) gala held at the PGA National Resort in Palm Beach Gardens. Ticket prices and donations directly supported veteran’s dental care and helping to prevent homelessness among veterans.

We’ve mentioned before how Dr. Norkin volunteers his periodontal services and serves on the dental advisory board of this non-profit. It’s an invaluable charitable organization here in Florida, especially where we have the 3rd largest population of veterans in the U.S.

For more than 700,000 vets here, important dental care is simply out of their financial reach. A statewide dental program with general dentists and periodontal professionals like Dr. Norkin provides critical one-time dental care.

The WVRF was founded in 2009 and is located in North Palm Beach, Florida with additional members in the Tampa, Orlando and Pensacola regions. You can “Like” WVRF on Facebook at and follow them on Instagram @wvrelieffund.
