Donated Dental Services (DDS) Provides Dental Care for Vietnam Veteran

Did you know that Donated Dental Services (DDS) helps veterans get dental care they need so desperately but can’t afford?  Read about Steve, just one of many veterans DDS has served:



Steve is a Vietnam veteran that lives in Oregon. He suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder, Hepatitis C and chronic pain. He received medical care through the VA but does not have any dental benefits and simply couldn’t afford the treatment he needed.

Oral surgeon James Savage, DDS, donated an extraction and a Tori removal, and Eugene Meyerding (left), DMD, provided full upper and lower dentures. 


We have numerous stories like Steve’s. Stories of people whose Medicare or VA benefits don’t cover dental care. The need is great, and we need your help.  You can help us serve more people, more veterans, by making a donation to Donated Dental Services (DDS) today.
