The Delta Dental of Illinois Foundation will post upcoming events and news throughout the year here.

Delta Dental of Illinois Announces $2 Million Donation to Help Improve Access to Dental Care for Vulnerable Illinois Children

Delta Dental of Illinois Foundation has announced a $1 million grant to the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) College of Dentistry and a $1 million grant to the Southern Illinois University (SIU) School of Dental Medicine. The combined $2 million gift will allow both the College and School to serve thousands of additional Illinois children annually and significantly decrease the wait time for treatment by creating state-of-the-art ambulatory centers focused on children’s oral health needs. The centers will feature procedure rooms specifically designed for children with innovative equipment such as cone beam CT, a special kind of X-ray, and new sedation suites. Learn more.
