The UNC School of Dentistry student clinics allow patients to receive preventive and other dental care from students who are currently enrolled in the DDS, dental hygiene and dental assisting programs. These students provide dental treatment in all areas of dental care and are supervised by a faculty member at all times. Treatment areas include but are not limited to:

  • General dental care (e.g., cleanings, fillings, extractions)
  • Orthodontics
  • Endodontics (e.g., root canals)
  • Implants
  • Crowns and bridges
  • Complete and partial dentures
  • Pediatric dentistry
  • Geriatric dentistry

The student clinics takes two of the school’s primary missions – excellence in teaching and patient care – and accomplishes them both at once. The school’s students provide their patients with state-of-the-art care while being mentored to ensure the procedures are accomplished correctly and efficiently. Patients in the student clinics are a critical part of the school’s education process, but they are also still patients who deserve – and receive – the highest level of care. At the UNC School of Dentistry student clinics, patients can rest assured that they’ll be treated ethically, correctly and fairly.
