You should contact the OU Dentistry faculty dental group practice,
housed within the College of Dentistry building where your dental needs and those of your family can be treated by the faculty of the College. OU Dentistry is a full service group practice where virtually all of your treatment needs can be met in one convenient location. Our services include all phases of general dentistry, family dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, implants, reconstructive dentistry, cleanings, periodontal treatment, orthodontics, oral pathology, children’s dentistry, endodontics (root canals), and oral medicine. Our motto is, “OU Dentistry, the standard of excellence in dental care for you and your family.” Our commitment is to serve you well, and to do it in a gentle, honest, consistent manner.
The primary focus of The University of Oklahoma College of Dentistry is the education and training of dentists and dental hygienists for the State of Oklahoma. Patients are selected to join the program who meet the educational needs of our students.
Adults who wish to be a patient of the University of Oklahoma College of Dentistry student clinic program must be screened to determine eligibility. The screening appointment will include an examination by a student and attending faculty member. There may be a need to take a minimal number of radiographs (x-rays) during the screening examination.
To schedule an adult screening appointment -
Please call 405-271-6056 between 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday to schedule a screening appointment. A limited number of patients are accepted for screenings each month. When you call 271-6056, you may receive a message stating that our screening appointment list is full. This will occur when we have enough patients scheduled for the current month. If this occurs, please call back in one or two weeks. We currently are making screening appointments one month ahead of time. Please listen to the complete menu list when you call 271-6056.
The screening appointment will determine if your dental needs match the educational needs of our students. A screening does not guarantee acceptance into the adult program.
If you are accepted into the adult program, every effort will be made to assign your care to a dental student; however, assignment to a student cannot be guaranteed.
