Yes, nationally over 7,000 patients are waiting for treatment.
A trained Case Manager/Coordinator screens every applicant before they are referred to your office. They remove barriers to care by ensuring the patient has reliable transportation, is committed to treatment, and will arrive on time and truly appreciate your help.
Very little paper work is required. We ask that you submit a one-page on-line or hardcopy document, indicating how much treatment you donated, time spent and services provided.
Great! Then you know that feeling of helping someone who truly needs it. The best part of DDS is that you pick WHEN you donate and WHO you treat—no working on someone else’s timeframe or patient roster, and no traveling to another location.
Most dentists do. Although such charity work doesn’t get public notice, it needs to be quantified so state policymakers know exactly how much our profession does to help the people who fall through the cracks. Many of your pro-bono patients might even qualify for the DDS program.
Treating a DDS patient doesn’t just improve oral health, it can save someone’s life! Whether restoring a smile and self-confidence, or clearing up an infection that had delayed surgery, cancer treatment, dialysis, or organ transplant, your donation WILL be life-changing.
That’s ok, DDS can wait. But please sign up NOW so you’re ready when that time comes; the DDS Case Manager/Coordinator can check back with you in a month, a year, or any date you name. DDS will let you know about future needs so you can say yes when the time is right for YOU.
Apart from the free survey software, we also have access to QuestionPro’s free survey templates . We’ve found many of them useful and powerful to collect insights from various stakeholders of our organization.
