Opportunities to Serve 

IDDS members traditionally spearhead and participate in many programs to give back to both the profession and community.  Giving back gives  members a chance to advance oral health wellness in the community, mentor new members and partner with community leaders to increase public health awareness. 


We invite you to participate in the following programs

Give Kids A Smile (GKS)

February is National Children's Dental Health Month.  IDDS encourages members to participate in various scheduled events to promote good oral health habits.  Our volunteer dentists provide both educational instruction and clinical care to children.  Many of our members work directly out of their private offices to reach out to children in their community.


Mission of Mercy (MOM)

Since 2015 Indiana Mission of Mercy has provided dental care to over 3000 Hoosiers.  Both adults and children with limited resources can participate in this event.  Services offered during the MOM event include screenings, restorative, endodontic, periodontic, oral surgery, and some same-day fixed removable prosthodontic care.  IDDS Foundation has provided financial support and our members along with their teams have participated in this statewide event.  Please watch for opportunities to volunteer you and your dental team in the future at this wonderful event.

Donated Dental Services 

Since 1991, the Donated Dental Services program of Dental Lifeline Network has matched patients in need with dentists who are willing to provide free comprehensive dental treatment to individuals with disabilities or who are elderly or medically fragile and have no access to care.  Both dentists and dental laboratories donate their time and talent to provide Hoosiers with life-changing dental care.  For more information on participating in this program visit
