Dr. David Dickerhoff's Donated Dental Services Campaign for North Carolina
by Dr. David Dickerhoff
Supporting: 2019 Lifeline Heroes Challenge for Dental Lifeline Network
I'm asking you to support Dental Lifeline Network's Donated Dental Services (DDS) in North Carolina.
Dental Lifeline Network*North Carolina (DLN) has over 350 volunteer dentists and over 100 dental laboratories willing to give of their time and talents to patients who have been pre-screened for need. Our DDS program provides pro-bono, comprehensive care for elderly patients, individuals with disabilities and those who are medically fragile. Many of our patients need an organ transplant but can't receive it until their oral health is established. These are people who cannot afford necessary treatment and cannot get public aid.
We currently have hundreds of patients on a waiting list, but we have no state administrator to run the program to it's fullest capacity. As chairman of the Dental Lifeline Network*North Carolina Leadership Council and a longtime volunteer for this great organization, please consider supporting us in any way you can. It's an amazing effort helping many great people. Funding for this non-profit is all we need!
Thank you for your incredible heart!
