Who We Are
Donated Dental Services (DDS)is an initiative of the Virginia Dental Association Foundation, an affiliate of the Virginia Dental Association. The mission of DDS is to provide free, comprehensive dental care to the elderly and disabled individuals within the Commonwealth through a network of caring volunteer dental professionals. The DDS process is designed to treat patients with dignity and make volunteering easy for the dentists and laboratories.
Dentists donate treatment in their own offices, working their own equipment and staff. Since the commencement of the DDS program in 1997, over 560 volunteer dentists and 138 laboratories have committed to provide dental care and services for disabled and elderly Virginians.
Over 400 people in Virginia are waiting to be seen by a volunteer dentist. Emergency dental care is not available.
