Dental Lifeline Network (Donated Dental Services Program)

Donated Dental Services (DDS), a program of the Dental Lifeline Network (DLN), is a collaborative, direct way that the dental profession reaches out to our nation’s most vulnerable people; disabled, elderly or medically-compromised individuals who cannot afford necessary treatment nor get public aid such as Medicaid or Medicare. Dental professionals do this by volunteering their dental services at no charge.

Participation could not be easier.  Dentists and labs take care of the patients. DLN’s Donated Dental Services program takes care of everything else.

“The altruistic activities of DLN are unprecedented:

  • Needy patients are analyzed by a social worker before they even qualify to be assisted by DLN.
  • You are given the opportunity to treat the patient in your own office free of charge.
  • You are working in a familiar environment with your own employees.
  • You do not have to travel.
  • You can combine these patients on days that you are accomplishing your normal treatment.
  • The patients are very reliable.
  • If laboratory work is necessary, dental laboratories associated with DLN provide their services free of charge.
  • Your services for the patient usually allows them to go back to work, become a normal citizen, get out of ill health, overcome threatening potential systemic maladies related to their oral disease, and very importantly regain self-esteem and well being.
  • The payment for you is just as you would expect – profound gratitude, thanks beyond belief, and tears of joy.

Get involved, and you will be richly rewarded.”  –Dr. Gordon Christensen
