Keep moving forward

Initial planning at the start of the COVID-19 emergency has given way to longer-term strategies. The Chicago Dental Society will continue to provide helpful information and resources during this new phase for dental practices so CDS members emerge stronger and prepared for what’s ahead.

We urge you to email us at [email protected] with questions you'd like answered and we will do our best to address them. 

Please keep in mind that information is changing hourly and daily. CDS will update its website by 9 a.m., Monday – Friday, so you have the most current information to weather this unprecedented challenge to our profession and nation.
