The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) maintain the National Plan and Provider Enumeration System (NPPES) to assign unique identifiers to health care providers for the purpose of efficient and effective electronic transmission of health information. Included dentists have a National Provider Identification (NPI) identifier with a registered primary practice address.
The map displays all Illinois dentists listed, categorized by self-identified dental specialty. Providers identifying as “dentist” have been combined into the category of “general dentists.”
Non-primary office locations are not represented. Practitioners may have secondary or tertiary office locations.
