Senior Smile Dental Service

The Senior Smile Dental Service is a community service program providing low-income, uninsured senior citizens living in Multnomah County with affordable dental care. Through SSDS, participating Multnomah Dental Society members agree to offer treatment to qualified patients at a 50% reduction in normal rates, with the exception of lab fees, which are charged in full. Sponsored by MDS since 1979, this community service program has provided nearly $1,000,000 in routine and specialty treatment to over 4,000 residents. Our goal is to help those seniors who would otherwise have no means of affording professional dental care.

Services:
* Routine dental treatment
* Specialty dental treatment
