Dental supply and manufacturer companies will donate to Dental Lifeline Network on
Every Smile Counts Day. Will you?
That is the question posed to dental professionals everywhere for the third year running.
February 21 will mark the 3rd annual Every Smile Counts Day and participation in the form of donations and sponsorship is still being accepted in support of the Dental Lifeline Network.
What is Dental Lifeline Network?
A 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, founded in 1974, that nationally provides access to dental care and education for people who cannot afford it and:
- have a permanent disability or
- who are elderly: age 65 or older or
- who are medically fragile
According to Dental Lifeline Network:
“Through our flagship program, Donated Dental Services (DDS), dental care is provided through a national network of 15,000 volunteer dentists and 3,700 volunteer laboratories. Dental Lifeline Network has 60 staff members. Many, located throughout the United States, serve as Program Coordinators who work with these volunteers, linking them with patients in need of care.
We provide real help for real people with real problems. Every dollar donated to Dental Lifeline Network generates $8.87 in care through our flagship program, Donated Dental Services (DDS).”
