The different clinics suit different styles of needs, schedules and comfort levels, so each patient can find a clinic that’s a best fit for them.

Carolina Cares. Perhaps the best reason to come to Carolina for dental care is because since its founding in 1950, the school has prioritized providing oral care for the citizens of North Carolina, the nation and the world. It took just two years for the school to begin seeing patients in a clinical setting. Now, the clinics see more than 114,000 patient visits annually for all kinds of dental procedures – from a routine cleaning to a complicated surgical procedure.
