Using art to illuminate the disability experience.
Bodies of Work is a network of artists and organizations whose art showcases and celebrates the disability experience.

We are a consortium of more than 50 of Chicago’s most recognized cultural, academic, healthcare, and social service organizations, and are housed in UIC’s Department of Disability and Human Development.

We have over 280 faculty dentists and resident specialist dentists-in-training in General Dentistry Endodontics, Oral Medicine & Pain, Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, Orthodontics, Pediatric Dentistry, Periodontics and Prosthodontics. Many of our faculty also provide care through our faculty practice, as well as teach in the college. Also, many of our faculty serve as researchers who lead scientific investigations that advance the methods used in our clinics.
All College of Dentistry patients have the advantage of highly personalized treatment and the choice of getting their care from a student dentist, a resident specialist, or faculty specialist. Either way, we offer patients one-on-one attention, and the best treatment plan to match your needs, and your schedule – for the best overall value.
To become a patient for non-urgent comprehensive adult care, please call (312) 996-1265 Monday through Friday to schedule a screening appointment. If you have an urgent need for dental care ( for example swelling, infection), please call (312) 996-8636
Over the first three years at the College of Dentistry, students are introduced to issues contributing to health disparities in this country, thereby impacting a person’s oral health status. While visiting local communities and community organizations, students are provided with first-hand learning experiences including providing oral health education in elementary schools and engaging in a variety of volunteer opportunities which lend themselves to explore the following topics: health education, access to health care, social determinants of health, risk factors, and literacy, language, & culture.

Each year, the College of Education provides grant funding for community engagement projects created by students, alumni, faculty and staff to strengthen communities locally, nationally, and globally.
To safeguard the health and safety of the families that participate in our UIC Engineering Experience Camp, we have opted not to run our camp in summer 2021. Online instruction, which is still the dominant mode during the pandemic, would not allow for the hands-on experiences and teamwork that are hallmarks of our camp.
We plan to return with a bigger and better camp experience in summer 2022 that incorporates activities and experiences from all six UIC Engineering departments, so please bookmark this space and watch this page for updates. Thank you for your support of the UIC Engineering Experience Camp, and we hope to see you on campus in the future!
