DC Dental Cares
A pro bono program of the D.C. Dental Society Foundation
The DCDS Foundation has a program to provide pro bono dental care to members of the Washington Community in need called D.C. Dental Cares. This program is administered under a partnership with the Catholic Charities Health Care Network.
Through this program, D.C. dentists are able to provide pro bono treatment for patients in their own office with no long term commitment. The type and amount of treatment rendered to these patients is entirely at the discretion of the dentist. Patients will be pre-screened for their eligibility for this program based on their economic status. Our member dentists will receive a referral, which outlines the patient’s general oral health needs and their chief complaint.
