Donated Dental Services (DDS)


• DDS volunteers provide comprehensive treatment to eligible patients
• Volunteers do not provide emergency services


Applicants must lack adequate income to pay for dental care and:

• Have a permanent disability, or
• Are elderly: age 65 or older, or
• Qualify as medically fragile

Due to lengthy wait lists, applications are ONLY being accepted in the following parishes: East Feliciana, Lafourche, Plaquemines, Rapides, St. Bernard, St. Charles, St. James, St. John the Baptist, and St. Mary.

If you are a military veteran, who still meets our eligibility guidelines, you may still apply to the program even if your parish is closed.

If you have documentation from a physician stating that you cannot receive essential medical treatment due to your dental condition you can apply for the program even if your parish is closed.

Dawn called after treatment. She was very pleased and happy with everything. We gave her a reason to smile and feel good about herself.
