Permanent link  Local dental association adopts CDSF Clinic — with great results


The CDS Foundation was so thankful when Chicago’s Chinese American Dental Association stepped up to adopt the CDS Foundation Clinic the week of Sept. 23. Its members committed to covering all patient care those five days.

And the members can be proud, as their work was tireless. In one week the volunteers posted: 

  • 54 volunteer hours
  • 71 patients
  • 27 different procedures
  • $16,680 worth of donated dental services – for which the patients did not pay a dime.

Many, many thanks to Drs. Jennifer Chen, Jason Cheng, Chen Li Chin, Frenk Feng, Yi Hsiung Huang, Barbara Lin, Samuel Lin, Tony Liu and Helen Lo. They were joined in the clinic by hygienists Valentia Beresneva, Pam Bienduga and Cheryl Pierini.

If your group wants to adopt the clinic for a week, too, contact the CDS Foundation Dental Clinic at or call 630.260.8530.
