Initial screenings for student clinic

An initial screening visit that includes a dental exam and panoramic X-ray is required to become a patient in our student clinic. During the visit, faculty dentists will assess your overall dental needs and determine if they meet the educational objectives of our student dentists. A $79 fee is required for this service and due at the time of service.

If you are accepted into our program, you will be assigned to a student dentist who will contact you to discuss and schedule your treatment, usually within two weeks of your screening. Although we accept the majority of patients who request our services, we regret that we cannot accept some patients because their needs are too complex for the student practice.

Please note: There is no financial screening program at our student practice. Although we are proud that we offer service at reduced fees, we do not offer in-house payment plans or fees on a sliding scale. However, we will be happy to assist you in applying for CareCredit, a third-party credit program.

In accepting patients, we do not discriminate on the basis of race, creed, sex, national origin, or age.
