Go Out and Volunteer

Published by Brian Homann DDS

Chicago Dental Society – Brian Homann, DDS

I want to thank Dr. Jun Lim and the Chicago Dental Society for inviting me to speak at the 2016 Midwinter Meeting held at McCormick Place. It was a great turnout, and hopefully everyone there was able to learn something. For those of you who couldn’t make it to the meeting, I thought I would share with you what I considered the most important take-away from the lecture.

My suggestion can be summarized in one simple word: Volunteer. I want to encourage everyone to volunteer in their community. My presentation was obviously focused on dentistry because I see a huge need for volunteer dentists, hygienists, and assistants. However, you don’t have to be close to the dental field to volunteer. There are so many amazing organizations that need your help. And the best part is, most of them are in your own neighborhood.

You don’t even have to dedicate an entire day. Maybe you have 4 hours to spare every other month. Even that small amount of time can make a huge impact.

Are you a stay at home mom that can’t leave your kids home alone? Consider fostering a dog for a local shelter until they can be adopted.

Are you a graphic designer, computer technician, or do you know how to design websites? You wouldn’t believe the amount of benefit you could provide a local organization in just a very short amount of time.

In my experience, volunteers often get more out of the experience than the people they are helping. You can even make it a family event. Many organizations have tasks that most school aged children can perform.

In summary, I encourage everyone to take a few hours out of your month and make a positive impact on your community.

Most caring dental staff I’ve ever encountered. Every experience has been extremely professional, from just calling to ask a question to cleanings for my whole family and beyond.

Dr. Homann goes out of his way to make sure you understand each step of the process and are comfortable the whole way. Each member of their team genuinely cares about their patients, and knowing I will have the best care every time I walk in the door makes going to the dentist a whole lot easier. Thank you to all the kind and wonderful staff, you make all the difference.

Dr. Homan is the best dentist I've ever been to. Most of my co-workers go to Dr. Homan and that's how I heard about him.

I needed a lot of work on my teeth and I'm so glad I found such a great dentist. He explains everything to you and also is very upfront on all posibiltys that's can happen to the tooth he works on and also explains what you can expect after the dental work. He's also very friendly and everyone at the office makes you feel comfortable. Karen and Sandra in the front office are wonderful as well. They also have wonderful dental hygienist. My insurance is not in network with Dr. Homan but it's well worth the extra money to still go to the best!

Dr. Homann's practice is very clean and up to date. His practice also has televisions to watch when you are getting your teeth cleaned or any other work done which is awesome!

The chairs are very comfortable and the staff is very polite. Dr. Homann is also a very knowledgeable dentist with the ability to make every patient feel calm and comfortable no matter what the situation. He also has done volunteer work for the homeless donating his time and resources to help the less fortunate, if that doesn't let you know what kind of practice this is I don't know what will. I will definitely be coming back here again!
