Participating in our local and global communities is important to us, and so at Gallery Park Dental we make it a priority to be active in health fairs, sponsor local causes, attend conventions, and continually provide outreach and care to the underserved.
Dr. Gripentrog and Dr. Rogers go above and beyond to ensure the care and satisfaction f our communities through programs such as Dental Access Days in Evanston, Night Ministry of Chicago, and Bears Cares. Additionally, Dr. Gripentrog actively participates in the Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center's Mobile Dentistry Program, serving the many of the underserved areas of the city of Chicago, and the Gives Kids A Smile program. Both Dr. Gripentrog and Dr. Rogers have done extensive mission work, providing dental care to areas of Jamaica and Haiti.
All of us at Gallery Park Dental care about the continued health and satisfaction of our community and we will continue to provide active care and comfort, both here in Glenview and its surrounding areas and globally, to the best of our ability.
Dental Access Days (DAD)
Dental Access Days seeks to provide dental care to those in poverty and the mentally disadvantaged throughout the Chicagoland Area. By setting up free clinics in underserved communities, Dental Access Days is able to provide necessary dental care to hundreds of patients at each hosted clinic.
Since moving to Glenview, both Dr. Gripentrog and Dr. Rogers have made it a priority to participate in semi-annual clinics through Dental Access Days. Together Dr. Gripentrog and Dr. Rogers have been able to provide care, knowledge and necessary treatment to numerous patients, without the help of this program would otherwise not have had access to routine dental care.

Most developing countries do not provide the necessary dental and medical care or treatment to their impoverished communities, making volunteers throughout the world a major source of this treatment and care. Dr. Gripentrog and Dr. Rogers recognize the importance of providing care and treatment to underserved areas of the world, and they do their part by volunteering their services to free clinics. Each year, our doctors travel to areas of Haiti and Jamaica to provide their knowledge and care to patients in need of routine dental care and emergency treatment.
To be involved in the local community, we participate in health fairs throughout Glenview and its surrounding neighborhoods. We attend these fairs to reach out to our neighbors and provide information about our practice, and answer questions about dental treatment, insurance and financial information, and more.
Since our opening, our doctors and staff have participated in numerous health fairs hosted by a wide variety of companies, including Illinois Tool Works (ITW), Vi Residences, the American College of CHEST Physicians, and more. We prioritize participating in these events because it allows us to meet and interact with our local community!
