The Fisher House Project is one of the premier volunteer service programs of the ICD-USA Section. The Fisher House Foundation is a network of homes where military and veterans’ families can stay at no cost while a loved one is receiving treatment at a nearby military or Veterans medical center.

The International College of Dentists - USA Section, spearheaded by Dr. Nora Harmsen and Dr. Henry Diversi, partnered with the Fisher House Foundation to develop the Fisher House Project. This project allows volunteer Fellows to provide emergency dental care at no charge to the Fisher House families. The ICD-USA Fisher House Project was launched at the Fisher House located at Tripler Army Medical Center in Hawaii in 2012. ICD volunteer Fellows now serve many Fisher Houses throughout the United States. The ICD is honored to be able to help the families of those soldiers and veterans who have sacrificed so much for our country.
