Vdaf Success Stories

Joan-Johnson-with-Dr.-Swanson November-2014


Fredericksburg, Virginia

J.J. needed assistance with getting the dental services she needed to improve her oral and overall health. In July of 2014 she turned to DDS for help. We were able to match her with a volunteer dentist to complete a treatment plan and a few days before Thanksgiving, J.J.’s dentures were delivered! Truly a wonderful gift for J.J. and the volunteer dentist!
