Midwestern University's Dental Institute recently received a Star of Hope Community Partner Award from Hope's Front Door, a Downers Grove-based charitable organization, for providing dental care to underserved members of the community. Hope's Front Door provides an entry point to the physical and social services that are available for those less fortunate members of the community who need immediate assistance and help in finding continuing assistance. The Dental Institute was selected for the Star of Hope Award for its ongoing willingness to serve clients with dental emergencies.
"The Midwestern University Dental Institute is proud to be able to work with Hope's front door to serve our community," said Darryn Weinstein, D.D.S., Assistant Dean, College of Dental Medicine-Illinois, who accepted the award on behalf of the Dental Institute.
The Dental Institute is part of Midwestern University's Multispecialty Clinic in Downers Grove, IL and provides a wide range of treatments for the whole family. At the Dental Institute, students in their final years of study work under the supervision and direction of licensed dental faculty to provide comprehensive, compassionate care.
