Free dental clinic highlights shortage of care in Peoria

Victoria Wylie was up late one night, or early one morning, this week, roaming the halls of her apartment complex.

“I would’ve never been up reading the bulletin board at 2 a.m., but I couldn’t sleep,” she said. “My mouth was killing me.”  

And there it was, a flier about a free dental clinic in Peoria. For a woman who hasn’t eaten on the left side of her mouth for more than a year because of a broken tooth, the flier may as well have been a message from on high.

Wylie, 52, of Peoria managed to get a vacation day from work at the last minute so she could spend Friday at the dentist, a good part of it in the makeshift waiting room on a paved parking lot along Willow Knolls Road,

waiting her turn for the dentist’s chair.

“I think this is the sweetest thing I’ve ever seen in my life,” she said.

The number of people who showed up for Peoria’s first “Free Dentistry Day” was a message about the continuing critical shortage of affordable dental care for both the employed and unemployed, insured and uninsured.

The free dental clinic was sponsored by five local dental practices — the offices of Affordable Dentistry Today in Peoria and Bloomington and the Peoria offices of Smile Design Center, Peoria Family Dental Care and Willow Knolls Family Dental at 7310 N. Villa Lake Drive, where the clinic was conducted.

They are all affiliated with Heartland Dental Care Corp., a national company that sponsors a free dental clinic annually in each city where it has offices.

“This is our first in Peoria, and we hope to have many more,” said Chad Hallett, marketing manager of Heartland.

Hallett, of Heartland’s Effingham office, volunteered his time along with the dentists and about 30 dental hygienists, assistants and office workers.

“Even though I’m not getting paid today, I’m excited to do this,” said Fabian Brown, a dental assistant from Bloomington. “I’m getting paid in another way.”

Though there was not an exact attendance count late Friday afternoon, Alicia Dieckow, an organizer and hygienist at Peoria Family Dental, said more than 100 people received free dental care.  

The first prospective patient told Kris Bickett, an office worker from Smile Design, that he arrived at 3 a.m. Bickett said when she arrived at 6:30 a.m., about two dozen people were already waiting.

The clinic went from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Most of the patients were from the Peoria area, and many were U.S. military veterans, Bickett said. Dental services for Peoria-area veterans are particularly limited. Most must travel to the Danville VA clinic.

When Wylie arrived at the clinic about 9:30 a.m., she became number 70. By 10:30 a.m., they were calling number 46. But she was more than happy to wait.

Even with health insurance, she can’t afford dental care, she said, because she can’t afford the co-pays on her minimum-wage salary.

Demetrious Watson, 46, of Peoria, a recent graduate of Illinois Central College, said the pain of a cracked wisdom tooth has caused him to go to the emergency room of all three Peoria hospitals at one time or another.

“Medicine is big business, and if you don’t have insurance, you’re nonexistent,” he said. Then he turned his head toward the makeshift dental lobby in the parking lot.

“These people are a god-send.”
