Virginia Dental Association Foundation, 2020 CFDRR Competitive Grant Recipient
According to VDAF: The overall goal of the Donated Dental Services (DDS) program, supported by a CFDRR grant, is to restore eligible seniors and adults with disabilities to good oral health. DDS matches them with volunteer dentists, specialists, and dental laboratories that provide comprehensive treatment free of charge in their private offices and clinics. Mr. WS is a 64-year-old male who suffers from Type II Diabetes, hypertension, and Stage 4 kidney disease. He is also the primary caregiver for his wife, who recently had brain surgery and requires full-time care. Life is quite challenging for Mr. WS, and caring for his dental needs through the DDS program has been a great relief to him.
