Dental Care

Heartland Health Centers is one of the few oral health resources available for low-income residents on Chicago’s north side.

Our adult oral health and behavioral health services are reserved for our primary care HHC patients only. We are unable to provide these specialty services for new adult patients seeking only oral health care. Our oral health department currently provides high-quality, comprehensive care for pediatric, pregnant, and diabetic patients.

Preventive and restorative dental services include:

  • Cleanings
  • Fluoride varnishes
  • Sealants
  • Fillings
  • Extractions
  • Cancer screenings
  • Periodontal therapy for gum disease
  • Crowns and root canals for infected pedodontic (baby) teeth


Dental care services are provided at four Heartland Health Center locations.

  • Wilson Community Health Center in Uptown. Dental Care at Wilson is open to any patient who receives care at any of our locations.
  • Three of our school based health centers – Hibbard, Senn and Roosevelt. All three serve the student populations. Hibbard and Senn  are also open to any patient who receives care at our other health care facilities.

Preventative dental services are provided to patients ages 0-4 at our Devon, Lakeview and Lincoln Square health centers several times a month by appointment only.

Dental services are provided at schools for students regardless of insurance status. For patients at other sites, cost is based on a sliding fee scale.
