Chicago Dental Society launches tool to help residents find dentists  

It's becoming increasingly difficult to gain access to affordable dental care in the U.S. According to a joint investigation by Frontline and The Center for Public Integrity, more than 100 million Americans do not have dental insurance, which is why discount dental plans and other programs that can help people find affordable care are so important. In response to the growing dental health crisis in the U.S., The Chicago Dental Society (CDS) Foundation has launched a tool to help local residents find dental clinics in their areas.

The tool is for people looking for dental care in Cook, Lake and DuPage counties. Cook County is the second most populated county in the U.S. next to Los Angeles, and many people in this area struggle to afford even the most basic needs.

"There is an urgent need for this information," said Rodney Watt, CDS Foundation executive director. "With the elimination of dental services under Medicaid this July, there are more patients than ever relying on the dental care safety net."

According to a report conducted by the CDS Foundation in 2011, there is one dental clinic for every 11,400 Medicaid enrollees in Chicago. Many of these individuals should consider relying on discount dental plans instead to get them the care they need. These affordable plans can help connect them to dentists who can care for their teeth at  prices they can afford.

Savings plans are NOT insurance and the savings will vary by provider, plan and zip code. These plans are not considered to be qualified health plans under the Affordable Care Act. Please consult with the respective plan detail page for additional plan terms. The discounts are available through participating healthcare providers only. To check that your provider participates, visit our website or call us. Since there is no paperwork or reimbursement, you must pay for the service at the time it’s provided. You will receive the discount off the provider’s usual and customary fees when you pay. We encourage you to check with your participating provider prior to beginning treatment. Special promotions including, but not limited to, additional months free are not available to California residents or on Fully Insured Plans.
