DDS Program Seeking Volunteer Dentists
The Donated Dental Services (DDS) program in Minnesota is a program of Dental Lifeline Network (DLN) and has been in our state since 2003. Approximately 465 of your colleagues participate, but we are in need of even more general dental volunteers throughout our state, especially in the Twin Cities. Please consider volunteering to help those with disabilities, or who are elderly or medically fragile and cannot afford the needed dentistry.
MDF exceeds $1 million in helping those in need
This fall, the Minnesota Dental Foundation exceeded in providing over $1 million in funding to help the underserved access dental care in Minnesota. The Foundation’s first grant of $100 was in 2002 and now has cumulatively given out over $1 million to help the underserved access dental care through community and volunteer clinics, Give Kids a Smile, Mission of Mercy, Donated Dental Services and loan forgiveness programs in underserved areas of the state.
