What to Expect as a New Patient
All new patients receive a comprehensive oral health examination where you and your dentist decide the best treatment options.
Your first visit is a screening appointment, where we will assess your overall oral health care needs and determine whether a General Dentist or Advanced Specialty Dentist care option best match your needs. You may also choose to see a Faculty Dentist for your dental care. As an educational institution, appointments can take longer than a typical dental visit.
If you choose to see a student dentist, they will call you to schedule an initial evaluation, after which we will prepare a comprehensive treatment plan for your review and acceptance prior to beginning treatment. The initial evaluation and planning usually takes 2 to 3 visits and may require taking additional x-rays. Once your treatment plan is accepted, the student dentist will schedule your next visits, which typically take 1 to 2 hours.
We are committed to providing safe and effective oral health care in an environment that is compassionate and comfortable in service to our patients.
Are you a current patient?
If you are currently being treated, please contact your student dentist for appointments. If you cannot reach your student, please call (312) 996-7555.

“Dr. Obrez and Dr. Sahni, have worked as a team to find solutions to my TMJ pain management in addition to monitoring the joint issue they’ve identified. My issue is connected to a form of arthritis of my jaw joint based on the continued deterioration. It’s been a journey to say the least, but my daily pain level has lessened with much thanks to your team’s excellent care.
In addition to the phenomenal care I’ve received, I also believe not enough dental schools around the country are specializing in TMJ or truly understands the complexities of it as well as Dr. Sahni and her colleagues do. They are good to their patients and training the next generation of students as well.”
