An affiliated patient care clinic, SDM on Main, was opened in the Student Recreation and Wellness Center on the UNLV main campus at 4505 S. Maryland Parkway. This clinic serves students, staff, faculty, their families, and the public for general dental care and orthodontics. Complex care relying upon dental specialists is sometimes referred to the SDM campus on West Charleston.
This multi-provider clinic located at 1707 West Charleston, is a patient care clinic for residents pursuing additional training in general dentistry to broaden clinical skills. Exceptional general dentists and specialists supervise the delivery of patient oral health care through most aspects of dentistry, both at this facility and in a hospital or surgical center environment. Training in the same types of state-of-the-art equipment listed above is available at this clinic.
