• Being and Becoming a Chicago Dentist


    December 9th, 2010adminarticles

    Chicago is touted by most medical professionals as the stable of the world’s best and most intelligent physicians and dentists. And who would beg to disagree? The University of Chicago has been producing great dentists in all areas of specialization. The city has also been keen on implementing fair practice policies – and dental associations themselves regularly monitor their members: how much they charge their patients, reverence to dental insurance policies, and observing the importance of skillfulness in the different specializations, such as cosmetic dentistry, prosthodontics, orthodontics, endodontics, etc.

    The Chicago Dental Society, or commonly known by dentists in the US as the CDS, is nationally-revered dental association that represents all practicing dentists in the city. And unlike other city-wide dental groups, the CDS always wants it members to experience concrete benefits for their affiliation. The CDS hosts a multitude of informative, scientific dental meetings, seminars, and congregations aimed at improving the technical skill sets of dentists.

    The CDS, unlike most dental associations, updates their blog daily on dental news, political punditing, and outreach programs dedicated to improving the health of the city’s residents and the dentists they represent. The blog also does its part in reminding its readers of the core values the CDS upholds:

    * Professionalism
    * Integrity
    * Excellence
    * Leadership
    * Education
    * Service

    As a dentist in Chicago, it is imperative to have a tripartite affiliation with the CDS, American Dental Association (ADA), and the Illinois Dental Society (ISDS) as each club bears its numerous benefits. Dentists listed in each club’s respective directory makes them publicly recognized and become notified and prebooked in dentist-exclusive events, such as the renowned Midwinter Meeting, where dentists from different parts of America gather to learn more about dental advancements, meet dental suppliers, and get acquainted with dentists within the metropolis or in outlying towns/cities.

    For students who wish to pursue careers in dentistry or dental assisting, there are several colleges and universities offering premier education suited for your idea of college budget. Two of the best are the University of Chicago and the University of Illinois at Chicago.

    Student loans for Chicago dental schools are readily available for Chicagoans who cannot bear the burden of expensive dental school tuition, books, boarding expenses, and other miscellaneous costs associated with college study. Other private loaning companies also offer financial assistance to those whose families belonging to the average income bracket and are in need of low interest rates – but the application will entail a rudimentary financial and scholastic investigation if the student can live up to the loan or not. If the student still wishes to pursue a course in dentistry, but does not want to be covered in debt by the time he/she graduates, the government offers free partial scholarships to those interested in rendering their free service to the dental needs of the community before or after they graduate; however, there are only limited colleges and universities affiliated with this program of the government.
