Other Ways to Donate Equipment and Supplies

Below are other organizations that accept donated dental equipment and supplies to help needy children and adults locally and around the world. Before donating, consult your accountant, who may advise you to have the equipment properly appraised before taking a tax credit.

Caution should also be exercised before donating dental supplies, especially chemicals and medications. Many supplies most likely will have reached or are nearly at the end of their shelf life and could be unsafe or ineffective if used. These expired, opened bottles, containers, or packages often have uncertain content and should not be considered for donating.
