About PDS Serve Foundation

PDS Serve Foundation’s mission to serve communities locally, nationally and internationally through improved oral healthcare is carried out in part through our Mobile Dental Clinic’s efforts. Realizing that not everyone lives close to a dental office or a local community health center, the MDC serves the challenged urban and rural communities in need. Partnerships with local community organizations have allowed the PDS Serve Foundation the opportunity to spread oral health awareness while providing care and access to those without.
