Protect Your Child’s Teeth This Fall With Help From IWS

School Dental Program Canceled

The All Kids School Dental Program has been canceled for the upcoming school year, but families who previously received dental services at their child’s school can still receive comprehensive dental service from the Angel Harvey Family Health Center of the Infant Welfare Society of Chicago.

The All Kids School Dental Program is a benefit to families who would not otherwise receive dental services. Groups of dental professionals travel to Chicago area schools to perform exams and cleanings. Due to COVID-19, and with the recent decision by Chicago Public Schools to begin the school year with all students e-learning at home, some families may wonder how their children who once relied on the All Kids School Dental Program will access dental services for their children now.

IWS is Here to Help

Just because this useful service is canceled does not mean your child’s dental care is. Families in need can call to schedule an appointment with one of our talented and knowledgeable dental staff. You can schedule your medical appointment for the same day!

High-Quality Services and Resources

When you schedule a dental appointment at the Angel Harvey Family Health Center, you can expect:

  • Acceptance of Medicaid insurance plans and private insurance, and we have a sliding-fee scale for those who qualify!
  • Same-day medical and dental appointments available for the entire family!

Do you need a ride to your appointment? Current patients can speak to their Care Coordinator about having a FREE Ride scheduled through your Medicaid provider or our Uber Health program.
