The Dental Clinic at Roseman University opened Feb. 12. Students in the Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) program at Roseman University began seeing patients as part of their curriculum to become dental professionals.
The clinic provides basic oral health care at lower costs than are usually charged for dental procedures. Prices vary by procedure, but fees are approximately 50 to 70 percent lower than the average cost.
Anyone interested in becoming a patient in the Dental Clinic at Roseman University can schedule a no-cost consultation and screening appointment by calling 801-878-1200. Licensed Utah dentist faculty members will conduct the screenings.
Students saw their first patients Feb. 12 beginning at 1 p.m. Their academic schedule through August will include two half days per week in the clinic, on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m.
"A critical component of the DMD curriculum is the opportunity for students to treat patients under the direct supervision of Utah-licensed dentists,” said Victor Sandoval, associate dean for academic affairs. “This enables them to make supervised clinical decisions and begin to deliver comprehensive dental care to patients of all ages and backgrounds.”
The Dental Clinic at Roseman University will offer a wide array of dental care and patient services. Initially, since DMD students are only in their second year of a four-year program, they will conduct basic treatment and preventive procedures, such as cleanings and simple restorations, while faculty provide more comprehensive care for patients. Students will not provide more advanced treatments until they reach the third year of the DMD program in August.
In addition to teaching basic patient care techniques, the goal of the clinic is to prepare students to become competent, compassionate oral health caregivers.
The Dental Clinic at Roseman University also offers urgent care dental. Treatment in the urgent care clinic is provided by licensed dentist faculty members.
