Behind the Scenes: Vivian Lovingood, DDS Coordinator

Dental Lifeline Network • South Carolina’s Donated Dental Services (DDS) program is made possible by the work of generous volunteer dentists and dental labs, supporters, as well as the staff within DLN. Thanks to these individuals, the DDS program has been able to transform the lives of over 117,000 people in need.

DLN is happy to announce a new addition to our team, DDS coordinator Vivian Lovingood! Vivian is a social worker by heart and has recently moved back to South Carolina. Learn a bit about Vivian:

Favorite thing about Columbia: Southern hospitality.

What brought you to Dental Lifeline Network? Relocating back home to SC, wanting to work for a non-profit with a great mission.
