Our Mission

The Chicago Dental Society Foundation Clinic provides dental care to low-income residents of DuPage, Cook and Lake counties. The volunteer efforts of local oral healthcare professionals, as well as our partnerships in the community, enable us to care for those who otherwise would have limited access to quality dental services.

The Chicago Dental Society Foundation is the only dental foundation that owns and operates  a clinic in Illinois run by all volunteer dentists. 

What we do

  • Our volunteer dentists, hygienists and assistants alleviate pain and restore oral health through exams, prophylaxis, intraoral and panoramic X-rays, basic restorations and carefully evaluated extractions. 
  • Volunteers stay busy while working at the clinic because our staff pre-screens patients and schedules appointments in advance.
  • Our chairside assistant enables volunteer dentists to walk in, practice dentistry and feel good about the care they have delivered.
  • In some cases, volunteer oral surgeons and other specialists are called upon to provide more extensive treatment.

This free clinic relies on partners in the community, dental trade and oral health professions to deliver care.
