General Dentistry Student Clinics

In this clinical program, patients are treated by dental students under the direct supervision of the faculty. Patients are admitted based upon their treatment needs and their availability. Fees in this program are the lowest of all the school’s programs (approximately 50 percent lower than private practice), but the time commitment is the greatest. Patients should be available for at least two appointments per month. If you are interested in becoming a patient in this program, you must be evaluated through a screening process to determine if your needs support student training needs.
