An important message for our Dental and Dental Hygiene Students’ and Residents’ Patients. ​Due to the rapidly spreading Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, our student dental clinics and specialty clinics will be closed through April 24. We will contact you to reschedule your appointment.

We are adhering to State and Federal agencies and CDC guidelines, including asking all patients about travel history or if they are experiencing any type of cold or flu-like symptoms. If you have traveled abroad to an area affected by COVID-19, have had close contact with a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19 or are experiencing any type of flu-like symptoms such as fever, coughing, and shortness of breath, please help us maintain a safe environment for our patients by scheduling your dental appointment at a later date.
