Dental Lifeline Network has 15,000 generous volunteer dentists, 3,800 volunteer dental labs and major manufacturers who contribute materials and components for many cases. To serve patients who apply for Donated Dental Services (DDS), DLN needs funds for its social workers to screen applicants, match patients with volunteer dentists, arrange for help from specialists and labs and coordinate the treatment process. Last year, DLN served 10,000 patients nationwide.
