Dental Lifeline Network is a national, humanitarian organization providing access to comprehensive dental treatment nationwide to people with disabilities or who are elderly or medically fragile and have no access to care. DLN has three service programs.

    • Donated Dental Services (DDS)
      Our flagship program, Donated Dental Services (DDS) has provided $330 million in dental treatment to 117,000 vulnerable people since DDS was founded in Colorado in 1985. This treatment is made possible through the generosity of more than 15,000 dentists and 3,700 labs that donate their time and services and companies that donate materials such as teeth, alloy and dental supplies used by dentists and by laboratories for fabrications. A network of DDS Program Coordinators also make these donated services possible by screening and matching patients with dentists and arranging for the involvement of specialists and labs, as needed.
