â€œI donâ€™t believe in treating just teeth. I believe in treating people. This philosophy goes hand-in-hand with my strong belief that there is no substitute for quality dental care. Thatâ€™s why I insist on using only the most researched modern materials and the most effective techniques for restoring your oral health. I love my work. Itâ€™s most gratifying and joyous to see a patientâ€™s self esteem and confident smile return after the successful completion of a restorative procedure.â€
Dr. Agarwal has a strong commitment to his profession and the public. He is an active member of 7 dental organizations, routinely providing dental care to underserved populations in Chicago, having donated an office building and fully equipped practice, to charity, for this specific purpose.
After reading an article in The Star, a local Chicago Heights newspaper, Dr. Anil Agarwal changed his life and subsequently the lives of more than 700 low-income and uninsured people in the South Suburbs. That change is being celebrated by the official opening of the Agarwal Family Health Society Dental Clinic, 1415 Emerald Ave., Chicago Heights, Illinois. Marylin Walsh, his office manager, handed Dr. Agarwal an article about The Family Health Society in Chicago Heights, which helps unfortunate people with their dental care. The article mentioned the need for an office to continue providing dental service to the working poor, underinsured and uninsured. After reading that article, Dr. Agarwal willingly donated his office to the Family Health Society.
The official opening of the Agarwal Family Health Society Dental Clinic took place April 26, 2001. With a staff of four paid employees and 79 volunteers, the Society helps low-income, underinsured or uninsured South Suburban residents.
