Permanent link  Independents leave their mark on the CDS Foundation Clinic

04/29/2014

The Independent Dental Organization (IDO) of the Chicago Dental Society recently completed a week of volunteering at the CDS Foundation Dental Clinic, with spectacular results.

Volunteer dentists, supported by volunteer hygienists April 21-25, produced $12,022 in donated dental services. This included 26 fillings, 21 extractions and eight comprehensive exams, which completed treatment on 26 patients.

“It was our pleasure to have a small part in helping so many patients in need of dental care,” IDO president Michael Biasiello said in an email to the clinic. “Our job was made easy due to all of the help from Dottie (Mackie) and the rest of the staff at the CDS Foundation Clinic. It is our hope that more dentists and especially dental groups will get the message and respond to the urgent dental care needed in our community.”

Volunteers who participated in Independents Week at the CDS Foundation Clinic include Michael Biasiello, Trucia Drummond, John Gerding, Alejandro Godinez, Mary Hawley, Louis Imburgia, Helen Lo, David Nguyen, Stephen Palatinus, Sal Storniolo, Victoria Ursitti, David Williams and Michael Wince.

Other groups that have already scheduled volunteer events at the clinic include the Members Group and the Dental Arts Club.

To schedule an individual volunteer time or a group event, contact Ms. Mackie at 630.260.8530.

Permanent link  Thank you, Hellenic American Dental Society

03/10/2014

Kudos to the Hellenic American Dental Society for its work at the CDS Foundation Clinic Feb. 24-28. Its team of volunteers ran the treatment rooms during the inaugural Greek Week, with spectacular results:

 

  • Produced $11,546 in donated dental service
  • Placed 35 fillings
  • Extracted 18 teeth
  • Competed treatment on 5 patients

 

Many thanks to Drs. LaValle, Kouracos, Marinis, George, Kanellos, Lo, Papadimitriou and Haralampopolos, and honorary Greeks Dr. Sullivan and King, for their efforts that week.

There are still open operatories in the March and April calendars. Ask these volunteers about their experience, and then see for yourself. Call Dottie at 630.260.8530 if you have time to serve.
