About Our School

Our Patient Care

Numerous surgical and non-surgical procedures are performed by Department of Periodontology residents on a daily basis as part of its graduate clinic. Each resident provides contact information to each patient undergoing treatment. The patient is encouraged to contact the treating resident with any questions or concerns before or after care is provided. Care for such cases will be performed under the direction of the faculty. To schedule an appointment with a department resident, contact Tru Kelly at (919) 537-3728.

Department faculty members also provide care at the UNC Dental Faculty Practice. To schedule an appointment with a faculty member at the Dental Faculty Practice, call (919) 537-3939.
