Joanne sent me a very nice pamphlet of her dental history with pictures and a thank-you note after her treatment. I’ve been a volunteer for about 8 years. Patients come in with low expectations and leave often times in tears of joy, even with the smallest of treatment plans. The experience with DDS for my staff has been great. To any dentist considering volunteering, try it. It doesn’t intrude on my office dynamic and it’s very rewarding.
