A Legacy of Giving. A Legacy of Care.

Since 1974, Dental Lifeline Network and its community of volunteers and donors have served America’s most vulnerable adults through comprehensive dental care. DLN’s 50th anniversary serves as a reminder of the many generous and compassionate individuals who have been central to DLN’s longevity and impact. Thousands of dentists and specialists have welcomed patients with nowhere else to turn for help, and thousands of donors have fueled the growth of DLN’s national community of care for those most in need. Over the past 50 years, more than 170,000 lives have been transformed thanks to these profound gifts. 

DLN’s next 50 years of impact will continue to rely on this compassion and generosity. If DLN has been an important and enriching part of your professional and personal life, and you wish to ensure a lasting impact for those who need care, visit DLN’s Gift Planning Page that contains helpful tools and resources on how to give. If you’re interested in learning more about how to include DLN in gift plans, you can also reach out to Patrick Hayes at phayes@dentallifeline.org to get started today. 

“I want to provide monetary support to the organization that I have given so much time and effort to,” said Dr. Terry Buckenheimer, DDS Volunteer. “This will make sure my legacy and the importance I place in the program carries on.” 

You can carry on your legacy and make an impact with your gift to Dental Lifeline Network.

Special thanks to the following Legacy Society members who have made commitments to ensure DLN can serve thousands more. Your impact makes a difference.
