Our clinics

We have a clinic in Mattoon that offers comprehensive care by appointment throughout the year.

Our portable and mobile dental clinics aim to remove transportation barriers. During the school year, we visit schools, and children are dismissed from class to receive services. During the summer, we hold clinics in outlying communities.

Mattoon Dental Clinics:
Our Mattoon Clinic is a fun place for kids to come and get a healthy smile. We've designed the the clinic to be interactive and provide oral health education the moment you walk in the door. Call and schedule an appointment today!

School-Based Care:
Our mobile clinic provides preventive and urgent care at schools. We help kids with pain and infection that wouldn't otherwise see a dentist.

It features two operatories in a bright and cheery atmosphere. Each chair is equipped with a television for kids to enjoy their favorite videos. Additionally, nitrous oxide (laughing gas) is available to help children with mild dental anxiety.

Volunteer Dental Offices:
Participating volunteer dentists provide services in their private practices.


Who is eligible for dental care through SBL Dental Services?
• Children: birth through 18 years
• Children who receive benefits through Medicaid/AllKids
• Children eligible for Free/Reduced Lunch Program

The dental program is a collaborative community effort between Sarah Bush Lincoln, Lake Land College Dental Hygiene Program and area dentists in the East Central Illinois Dental Society who volunteer their time.

The mobile dental clinic was made possible through donations from our Mobile Miracles Campaign, as well as a grant from Delta Dental of Illinois Foundation.

Restorative dental care for children on the Free or Reduced School Lunch Program is made possible from WomenConnected.
