Pro-bono Dental Program for Holocaust Survivors

Pro-bono Dental Program for Holocaust Survivors

Federation is excited to share news about a new pro-bono dental program for Holocaust survivors established in partnership with the Rutgers School of Dental Medicine (RSDM).  

The program is led by a team of licensed dentists and board-certified specialists at RSDM including the Senior Associate Dean, Office of Clinical Affairs and other senior faculty. Each survivor’s dental needs are assessed by the program’s clinical leadership. Dental care is provided by specially selected upper-level DMD candidates and/or post-doctoral residents who are supervised by program faculty leadership. 

From the moment a survivor makes the first phone call through the entire course of treatment, every survivor is seen to be a VIP and treated with respect and dignity. A patient navigator helps to coordinate what is needed each step of the way and the care is provided in a safe, warm, and collaborative environment. 

To become a patient call (973) 972-5304, to reach a dedicated phone line for the Holocaust Survivor Patient dental program. 

NOTE: If you have dental insurance, please let a patient navigator know. If any of your care is covered by your insurance, RSDM will submit a claim to your insurance provider on your behalf.  Regardless of whether you have insurance or whether the insurance covers all that is needed, there will be no out of pocket expense to any survivor.
