Our Student Clinics and compulsory rotatary internship (C R I) services

We welcome everyone to our clinics, and provide comprehensive and referral dental services. Patients requesting student care are first evaluated by faculty dentists in Admissions. Treatment may be recommended by one of the following providers: students, CRI , or faculty. Excellent dentistry will be provided with all three options.

Pre-doctoral students (dental students): Our pre-doctoral students are carefully supervised by faculty.. Extra time and additional appointments may be required for treatment.
