Dr. Evan J. Fry, DMD

Evan J Fry, DMD, is a graduate of the University of Illinois at Chicago College of Dentistry. Graduating at the top of his class, he was inducted into the national dental honor society Omicron Kappa Upsilon. He is the recipient of numerous other awards, including the American Dental Education Association/GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Healthcare Preventive Dentistry Scholarship, the Albert Schweitzer Public Health Fellowship, the Dr. Caswell A. Evans Dental Public Health Scholarship, the Lina Tharp Award, the Dr. Gerson Gould and Mr. Sol. H. Gould Memorial Scholarship, the Dr. William S. Kramer Award, the UIC Chancellor’s Student Service Award, and the UIC “Sparky D. Dragon” Customer Service Award.

He was recognized nationally as the first runner-up in the 2020 American Dental Association’s Health Literacy Essay Contest for his article regarding oral considerations of the human papillomavirus (HPV). He was also selected for 2021 membership in America’s Best Doctors, a national publication which recognizes leaders across medical and dental specialties.

His professional areas of interest include working with patients on both ends of the age spectrum (elders and young children), oral surgery, the environmental impact of dental materials, health economics, and prevention-focused dental interventions. He is conversant in Spanish, well-versed in treating medically complex patients in partnership with their other healthcare providers, and comfortable working with patients with special needs. He enjoys making everyone feel comfortable and listened to as a dental patient.

Prior to practicing in the Fox River Valley, Dr. Fry served on the first medical and dental humanitarian team to Nicaragua since the global COVID-19 pandemic began, providing emergency and preventive dental care in remote mountainous regions of the country. Among his professional dental affiliations, he is a member of the American Dental Association, the Illinois State Dental Society, the Chicago Dental Society and its leadership development group, the Fox Valley Dental Society, the Academy of General Dentistry, the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology, and the Christian Medical and Dental Associations. He is a featured speaker at the 2021 American Dental Association national meeting in Las Vegas.

Dr. Fry is passionate about making dental care accessible to everyone, particularly marginalized and vulnerable populations. He regularly volunteers at the Chicago Dental Society Foundation clinic in Wheaton, providing pro bono care to patients with incomes less than 200% of the poverty level. He is the founder of a project in Oklahoma, working alongside his alma mater the University of Oklahoma and impact investment non-profit MetaFund, that is designing the care delivery model coinciding with the state’s recent adoption of adult Medicaid dental benefits. His office is a member of a network of clinics that provides care to individuals with developmental and intellectual disabilities through Clearbrook facilities and services. Since the beginning of dental school, he has provided pro bono services at RefugeeOne, formerly Goldie’s Place, which serves Chicago’s refugee community.

Aside from dentistry, Dr. Fry enjoys spending time with his young son, running marathons, scuba diving, attending opera and fine arts events, and playing board games. He attends Geneva Lutheran Church.
