DDS, Decatur Dental Services Fund (Scholarship)

Fund Est. 2005

Established by dentists: Dr. Roger Thompson, Dr. Matthew Baker, Dr. Terry Baker, Dr. Michael Johnson, Dr. Pam Johnson, and Dr. Kelly Ulman.
When asked of what they are most proud in the work they do, each one answered the same:  the people with whom they work. 
One of the most fulfilling events sponsored by the DDS is their annual free clinic:  Give Kids a Smile.  This free clinic offers dental services at no cost to families who do not have dental insurance.  They lauded their staff of employees who volunteer this day to work for the program.  The doctors said their staff is loyal, dedicated, and giving.
They care for patients like they are family.  The staff comments that they really like it when patients bring in their graduation and wedding pictures to show off their smiles. Says one staff member, "It is a good feeling knowing that we have helped them to smile confidently and to share their smiles of happiness during these important milestones in their lives".

The DDS Scholarship Fund in the Foundation is endowed and awards multiple scholarships to Adams County students majoring in the field of dentistry.
