Warriors of oral health

December 11, 2011

LEIPZIG & HEIDELBERG, Germany: The spirit of General Patton is greeting patients at the door. Only a few metres away from the hospital room where one of America’s most famous war heroes regrettably died in 1945, Lieutenant Colonel Cathleen Labate has just begun her daily shift. The dental provider from New Hampshire is one of almost 100 army dentists currently serving in the Europe Regional Dental Command (ERDC) at the Nachrichten Kaserne in Heidelberg, a small German town idyllically situated along the edge of the Odenwald forest. There she is jointly responsible for the oral health of several hundred soldiers and their family members in the surrounding Army communities.
