In the fall of 2016, the Georgia Dental Association made a three-year commitment to Donated Dental Services, a year-round charitable program that provides free, comprehensive dental treatment to our state's most vulnerable people with disabilities or who are elderly or medically fragile. The GDA houses a DDS program coordinator hired by Dental Lifeline Network, provides financial support for the program, assists in growing the network of volunteer dentists around the state and joins DLN/DDS in working to acquire state funding for the program. This is a significant program to reach individuals in dire need and ally with the Georgia Action for Dental Health plan.
Volunteer dentists are needed.
Volunteers treat patients in their own offices, utilizing their own equipment/staff, and several manufacturers donate materials for dentures, crowns, bridges and implants. Sign up to participate in the program via the Individual Volunteer Sign-Up Form (PDF) or by visiting dentallifeline.org and completing the volunteer inquiry form.
