Dental Lifeline Network Receives $400,000 Grant from Guardian Life
The Guardian Life Insurance Company of America(R) (Guardian Life) has announced a $400,000 grant to Dental Lifeline Network (DLN).
The Guardian Life Insurance Company of America(R) (Guardian Life) has announced a $400,000 grant to Dental Lifeline Network (DLN). The grant renews Guardian Life’s commitment to help expand dental care access across the country for individuals who are elderly, medically fragile or living with disabilities. Most patients DLN’s volunteer dentists treat suffer from seriously neglected diseases and are unable to access dental care due to the cost or lack of dental coverage.
The latest grant will further help DLN extend volunteer dentist recruitment efforts, expand coordinated care and support the Will You See One Vet campaign, a recruitment initiative aimed to engage volunteer dentists to help veterans with special needs.
Through the flagship program Donated Dental Services (DDS), DLN provides complimentary, comprehensive dental care through a national network of nearly 16,000 volunteer dentists and 3,500 volunteer laboratories.
Since partnering with DLN in 2018, Guardian Life has contributed nearly $1 million and helped increase dental care access both nationally and with targeted statewide programs in Connecticut, Illinois, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Washington.
