Dental Lifeline Network

Dental Lifeline Network, a strategic partner of the ADA, has been operating the Donated Dental Services (DDS) Program nationally since 1985, and in New York – Statewide - with the support of the New York State Dental Association since 2009. Patients are waiting for care in the Seventh District and throughout the state of NY. Only patients with disabilities, who are elderly or medically compromised and can’t afford care are accepted into the program. Please join the 450 dentists throughout the state who currently volunteer with DDS and help one patient at a time.

  • Pre-screened patients are treated in your office.
  • You determine the treatment plan.
  • Coordinators work with specialists and the labs.
  • You don’t pay for lab expenses.
  • Very little paper work is required.
