Services

UNLV School of Dental Medicine offers oral health care throughout the lifespan. Dental students and residents provide the majority of treatment, which is always supervised by licensed faculty dentists.

Schedule a Screening Appointment

We offer general dentistry services, such as cleanings, fillings, and crowns in our pre-doctoral student clinics. Each new patient must schedule a screening appointment to determine if his or her needs are a suitable match for our student doctors. Once approved, the patient will be assigned a student dentist to manage his or her dental treatment. Appointment lengths may vary, but generally range from two to four hours. Patients should plan to be here one half day every other week for dental treatment. There are three student clinics—Team 1, Team 2, and Team 3—and each is supported by a screening and treatment-planning unit.
