What we do

Guided by a belief that all families should have access to quality oral healthcare, the CDS Foundation has awarded more than $1 million to local dental clinics and programs that help get people the dental care they need. CDS members donate funds and time to the Foundation, and those resources are used to improve the public’s access to dental care programs and education. Specifically, we:

  • Provide dental health care to low income residents at the CDS Foundation Clinic
  • Provide grants to local non-profit organizations that provide access to care, and to the leading dentistry schools at universities in Illinois
  • Provide programs to increase oral health literacy and access to care in our communities
  • Provide opportunities for industries to support oral health
  • Accept donations that honor or memorialize a loved one. These types of gifts are enduring tributes that help further the mission of providing access to care
