All of our doctors and staff are passionate about giving back to our community. We are active participants in volunteering and organizing a number of different events for those in need of dental services. Our doctors volunteer procedures ranging from consultations and basic oral surgeries to intense facial trauma surgeries.
Dentists With Hearts
Every year for the last 8 years, our doctors have participated in the annual “Dentists With Hearts” campaign. Held on Valentine’s Day, Dentists With Hearts offers our community dental services free of charge. Free treatments include cleanings, x-rays, fillings, extractions, diagnostics, pain control, and minor surgeries. Over the past few years, we have been able to treat more than 2,000 people and provide over 1.25 million dollars in free dentistry.
Dr. Hanson also volunteers his services to Facing Forward, a Chicago area shelter for battered, abused, and homeless women. Facing Forward is a non-profit organization that helps homeless women set and achieve goals by providing permanent housing and a full array of services, including case management, healthcare, referrals for substance abuse treatment, mental health issues, education and job training. Dr. Hanson works with these women as they get back on their feet to help them regain confidence in themselves and their visual appearance.
At Lincoln Park Institute, we try to do our part to improve the communities where we live and work.
