In three weeks, Veterans Day will honor United States’ true heroes. What better time than now to support the people who once served our country but currently don’t have access to dental care.
The Lifeline Heroes Challenge In Support of Veterans is underway to assist the Donated Dental Services (DDS) program with a focus on helping veterans with special needs. It is generously supported by many companies such as Delta Dental, Guardian, Patterson Dental, Henry Schein and Benco Dental.

Dental Lifeline Network (DLN) connects those who cannot afford dental care, people with disabilities or who are medically fragile, and the elderly to the Donated Dental Services (DDS) program. This national network of DDS volunteer dentists and laboratories provide free, comprehensive and often life-saving dental treatment.
