Dental Care


The Inner-City Muslim Action Network (IMAN) is a community organization that fosters health, wellness, and healing in the inner city by organizing for social change, cultivating the arts, and operating a holistic health center. We do this through a variety of programming such as organizing, arts & culture, health center and green reentry.

IMAN incorporated as a nonprofit in 1997 through the drive of people directly affected by and deeply invested in social issues affecting communities of color living on Chicago’s South Side. Since that time, IMAN has steadily grown and, in 2016, opened a second office in Atlanta to continue mobilizing a cross-section of people committed to this mission.

The organization models an integrative approach that employs holistic interventions to address a spectrum of structural and systemic injustices, incorporating primary, behavioral, and oral health; artistic expression; leadership development; organizing and advocacy; housing; and job training, in an effort to substantially increase the quality of life for people in marginalized communities.

We believe quality healthcare is a basic human right. The IMAN Community Health Center is a federally qualified health center that manifests this belief with a mission of providing comprehensive, accessible, and culturally competent health care to its diverse set of patient populations. We work closely with SWSOC through referrals to our medical, behavioral, and dental services.

Oral Health Forum

The Oral Health Forum (OHF) is a community-centered grass-roots initiative committed to improving oral health programs and services for all Chicago residents through education, assessment, policy/program development, and collaboration. OHF promotes cooperation, communication, and concerted action among organizations dedicated to eliminating oral health inequalities.
