Preparing for your visit:

Patients will be seen on an appointment basis. During your first visit, you will be screened by a student care provider under the direct supervision of our licensed faculty-dentists. After the initial screening, if you are a candidate for our student providers, a follow-up appointment will be made to start your care. Please review the following information below regarding what you will need for your visit.

Please bring the following materials with you to your appointment:

  • A valid form of government ID.
  • Payment method.
  • Original insurance card(s).
  • List of current medications.

Clinic Arrival Expectations:

  • You will not be seen if you are 15 minutes past your scheduled appointment time.
  • Please arrive at the clinic 30 minutes early to your appointment to complete your patient forms.
