WVU School of Dentistry - Patient Services - Student Clinics

All treatment rendered in the student clinics is performed under the direct supervision of experienced faculty who ensure that every aspect of your treatment meets professional standards of care. This close supervision provides you with the best opportunity for quality care.

Student clinics are held weekdays from 9:00 am to 12:00 noon and from 1:00 pm to 4:45 pm. These clinics are closed for short periods during University holidays, between semesters, and for a short summer break to accommodate University academic schedules. However, School of Dentistry faculty, residents, and staff remain available to accommodate patient needs during these times.

Your First Appointment - What to Expect

During your first appointment, you will register and be asked for personal information which will allow us to complete a medical and dental history. This information is necessary to provide you with the safest dental care possible. X-ray films will be obtained, if necessary. A dentist will examine your mouth and discuss any findings with you. If recent x-ray films are available from another office, please arrange to bring them to your first appointment along with any other pertinent medical information. At the end of your visit, you will be advised as to whether your oral health needs can be managed in the student clinics. If so, you will be given additional information regarding student clinic policies and procedures and you will be advised we will make every effort to assign you to a dental student in a timely fashion to begin treatment.
