What to Expect as a New Patient
All new patients receive an initial evaluation to determine if your dental needs match student educational goals. Once accepted for student dentistry our clinic will schedule a follow-up appointment to begin treatments. If your dental needs require specialty care beyond the student dentistry services, we will refer you to one of our Advanced Specialty clinics. Minimum diagnostic fees, which include an exam and radiograph (x-ray) are required at the initial appointment.

Adult Dental Care
Comprehensive dental care and treatment plans including x-rays, cleanings, fillings, crowns, and other more complex treatments. 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 our Comprehensive Dentistry or Advanced Specialty care options best match your needs. You may also choose to see a faculty member for your dental care. As an educational institution, appointments can take longer than a typical dental visit. Minimum diagnostic fees, which include an exam and radiograph (x-ray) are required at the initial appointment.
