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 counties: Charleston, Dorchester, Florence, Georgetown, Horry, Oconee, Richland, Sumter, and York

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 county is closed.
