While NASDAD does not organize mission trips, NASDAD does believe in dental missions!! For this reason we believe it is important to make you aware of various mission opportunities that are available through other organizations.
If you are interested in one of the trips, please contact the organization directly. NASDAD is not part of the planning or execution of the trips. We simply want a forum for you to find out about organizations who need dental professionals to volunteer!
If you have an opportunity to list, please email Katie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Short term opportunities (a few days to a few weeks)
If you click on the enlarged picture, you will be redirected to each event's website...assuming they have a dedicated site.
Dear NASDAD Friend,
Whether you are a general practitioner or specialist, please consider joining Dental Lifeline Network’s Donated Dental Services (DDS) program. Helping even one person would be significant.
NASDAD endorsed “DDS”, a national humanitarian initiative helping people with functional and financial limitations related to advancing age, medical and/or other disabilities. They didn’t choose their challenging circumstances, but they must deal with them. Some require unaffordable and uncovered dental care in order to proceed with essential medical therapies.
Inquiring for more information or Signing on doesn’t obligate you to anything. You will be sent background information about an individual in your area. You can decline the referral, and a different volunteer will be sought. However, should you accept, the DDS program will arrange volunteer laboratory and/or other support that may be needed for the treatment plan you determine necessary. A program social worker is a phone call away to assist as you may request. And you can expect the patient to be reliable and grateful!
DDS transforms the parable of The Good Samaritan into a meaningful example of our faith. As dentists, only we can respond to the oral health needs of the vulnerable individuals served through the program. And they need our help.
