SDDF : Donated Dental Service (DDS)

Easy for dentists. Life changing for patients.

Volunteering is easy!
  • Review the patient profile in advance.
  • Choose to see or decline any patient.
  • Determine your own treatment plan.
  • See patients in your own office.
  • Never pay lab costs.
Count on your DDS Coordinator to:
  • Ensure that patients will arrive on time for appointments.
  • Be the liaison between your staff and the patient to facilitate everything.
  • Arrange for necessary specialists and labwork to be donated, as well.

Call Brenda toll free at 1-866-551-8023 to let her know that you would like to help an elderly or disabled person who desperately needs comprehensive dental care they cannot afford.

Dentists Enroll in Medicare?
 
Most dental services are not covered by Medicare; therefore, most dentists are not enrolled in Medicare. However, to ensure that patients on Medicare receive the services and supplies ordered for them by their dentist, SDDA members should enroll In Medicare.  Dentists may utilize a simplified process of enrollment in Medicare because the dentist will not be directly billing Medicare. Members should enroll by filling out short form: CMS-855-O and mailing it to South Dakota's Medicare administrative contractor:
