Permanent link  CDS Foundation Hosts a Clinic Open House


The Chicago Dental Society Foundation hosted an Open House Sunday, June 9, for CDS members and friends to visit the new CDS Foundation Dental Clinic. The Foundation welcomed well over 175 people to the Wheaton venue for a tour of the new space and some celebratory cake. Cook County President Toni Preckwinkle was also gracious through her participation in the event, making time to tour of the new facility. 

"The Open House was successful in that it provided a first glimpse to everyone attending of a professional dental office that serves low income residents of DuPage, Cook and Lake counties,” said Carolyn Van Eck, interim executive director of the Chicago Dental Society Foundation. 

“Our guests had a first-hand look of the three-operatory facility where our patients can make an appointment with a regularly scheduled dentist and arrive on site as any other patient would visit their dental office.  Our clinic offers patients dignity,  and our patients can take pride in calling the CDS Foundation Clinic their dental home." 

Since the clinic’s opening in late February, they have registered 242 patients of record and administered $110,636 worth of dental treatment.
