Many members of the G. V. Black District Dental Society volunteer their time and skills to help those people who could not otherwise access or afford oral health care. We are proud of the time and resources given by our members in their private offices each year. The following is a sample of how G. V. Black is present in our communities.
Mission of Mercy
Through America's Dentists Care Foundation, events are coordinated to provide free, basic dental services for the underserved.
The Illinois State Dental Society Foundation partners to sponsor Illinois Mission of Mercy programs. The G. V. Black District Dental Society works with the Illinois State Dental Society in recruiting dentists to assist in volunteering their services at events held within Illinois.
Kidzeum of Health and Science
Exhibits and programming are the two most important aspects of making the Kidzeum a state-of-the-art educational and entertainment facility for children and their families. Through a "healthy" donation, G. V. Black has become Exhibit Sponsor of the Dental Clinic at the museum. As posted on the Kidzeum web site:
"Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn."
