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.

  • Complete Dentures

    Affordable complete dentures to replace all of your missing teeth.

  • Implant Dentures

    An alternative to convenient dentures. Because of potential bone loss and decreased comfort, implant supported dentures are a good way to replace missing teeth. Dental implants will help better retain the overlying denture.

  • Crowns & Bridges

    Crowns look and feel just like your natural teeth. A crown may be placed over an existing tooth after it has been prepared or it may be placed over an implant that has been placed where a tooth has been lost.

  • Facial & Oral Pain, TMJ

    Non-intrusive and surgical treatments for facial & oral pain, TMJ/TMD, jaw pain, headaches, or sleep disorders related to oral facial pain.

Why Patients Choose UIC

“Besides the convenience and price, I especially like the cultural diversity of the students and instructors at UIC. It makes for a very friendly atmosphere.”
