Dental care with the student doctors or residents may take a longer period of time, but you can be assured of personal attention and supervision. Student doctors and residents provide the majority of treatment, which is always supervised by our dental faculty. Therefore, appointment lengths may vary, but generally range from two to four hours. You should plan to be here a half day every other week for your dental treatment. Appointments should be made through the regular appointment number you received when matched with your provider for treatment.

Our students and residents have classes they must attend along with providing care for patients. Their time is limited, and it is important that patients work with their student doctor or resident to successfully meet all their appointments.


Appointments in Community Service Clinics are scheduled similarly, as treatment is delivered primarily with students and residents under faculty oversight.

Appointments in the Faculty Practice are scheduled similar to a private practice.

Missed Appointments in the Student Program

If you miss or arrive late for an appointment, your student doctor or resident cannot make up that time. Loss of clinic time can significantly delay your treatment and may slow a student doctor or resident in completing their educational program. More importantly, missed appointments or late arrivals may cause us to discontinue your treatment. If it is absolutely necessary to cancel your appointment, you should do so at least 24 hours before the time of the appointment. If you know you will be late to your appointment, you should call as soon as possible to assure we have time to complete your planned procedure. Please call the scheduler of the clinic for which your treatment has been assigned.
