The Dental Center provides both primary and specialty dental care for your entire family, including young children, teens, adults, and seniors. The Dental Center is an innovative blend of dental education and patient care. Student dentists work under the direct supervision of licensed dental faculty to deliver quality and comprehensive oral health care with a strong emphasis on compassion. When appropriate, you will receive specialty services provided by licensed and experienced dentists in Periodontics, Pediatric Dentistry, Endodontics, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Radiology, Oral Medicine, Oral Pathology, and Prosthodontics.

The Dental Center is a state-of-the-art 68-chair treatment facility conducive to patient-centered care. It also features separate treatment rooms for specialty dental exams and procedures.

Appointments are generally longer than they would be at a private dental office due to the educational environment. This means that you will get a thorough exam using specialized state-of-the-art equipment and have adequate time to discuss your oral conditions and our recommendations. The cost for services is typically less than a private dental office to offset the longer appointment times.

You may contact The Dental Center on your own or with a referral from your primary dental professional. Our faculty and student practitioners will help you reach your oral health goals and teach you how to maintain your oral health.
