He’s teaming up with Dentrust Optimized Care Solutions (DOCS) to bring dental care to those on-base.

“I really didn’t think I was doing a good job of the community,” Payne said. “I just wanted to step it up a little bit and what better way to do it than with the military. I’m very thankful for what they do for me and everybody else.”

DOCS currently plans on bringing its services to 24 different military bases, and Fort Eustis is where they’re launching the new on-base services.
