Working With Dental Partners to Increase Access to Specialist Care

Howard Brown Health Dental is here for your oral health needs. For oral surgery referrals, we work with our partner clinics and offices to get you the care you need in a timely manner. Rather than have our dental patients wait for sliding scale or Medicaid dental care, they can go to our partners, Dr. Steven Koos, DDS, MD and Dr. Jamal Flowers, DDS.

Read our interview with Dr. Koos and Dr. Flowers about the services they offer and why they work with Howard Brown.

I was very excited when Dr. Robin Gay, Howard Brown’s Dental Director (whom I’ve known and worked with for many years now personally and clinically), reached out to me over a year ago to develop a “private practice alliance” of sorts with Howard Brown to expand access to oral and maxillofacial surgery.

I am thrilled to be an extension of Howard Brown’s medical and dental teams to help positively affect the gaps and inequalities in healthcare within the LGBTQQIAAP community.  Providing oral surgery services is an essential component of fostering holistic health. I am proud to be able to partner with Howard Brown to help achieve this goal for my Chicago community. – Steven Koos DDS, MD
