Video Transcript:

Hi, I'm Lynda Ricketson. I'm the president and CEO of Dental Lifeline Network. Dental Lifeline Network is a national nonprofit. We provide comprehensive dental care to patients who are elderly, disabled, medically fragile and have no other place to turn for help. This year we're celebrating a momentous occasion, our 50th anniversary. And during that time period, we have served over 166,000 people, providing over $520 million in donated dental treatment.

We've done this through a incredible network of volunteer dentists and labs. We have currently around 13,000 volunteer dentists and 3400 volunteer labs and without their support and the support of our donors and foundations and everyone we would not be able to do this very important work.

We are going to be doing a video and we're going to be highlighting the people that have made it possible for us to get to this 50-year occasion. And we will be doing some social media throughout the year highlighting various people who have made this momentous occasion possible.

Well, hopefully we have another 50 years of serving people who are desperately in need of care. We're positioning ourselves we're trying to work very closely with DSOs [dental service organizations] is the new premier dentistry to help us to serve these patients. For people who want to volunteer go to WhyIDental.org [or dentallifeline.org] and you can sign up online, you can donate, or you can leave a message on a Kudoboard.
