Illinois Donated Orthodontic Services Program

WGN TV News Interview for more information about the program

Thanks to concerned orthodontists in the Illinois Society of Orthodontists, the Donated Orthodontic Services Program provides care at a nominal fee to children whose families cannot afford needed orthodontic treatment. Participating orthodontists donate one or two cases per year to help qualified disadvantaged children.

Requirements for participation:

  • Patients must be a resident of Illinois.
  • Patients must be between the ages of 8-18.
  • Patients cannot already be in braces or in between phases of orthodontic treatment.
  • Patients must be receiving regular dental care and have good oral hygiene.
  • Total family income must be below 200% of federal poverty level.
  • Patient must be ineligible for orthodontic treatment through insurance or public aid.
  • If determined eligible after the initial visit with the volunteer orthodontist, a coordination fee of $200 applies.
