Dental Emergencies

If your first visit to the school is for emergency dental care, we will make every attempt to resolve your chief dental problem. Evaluation and treatment in our Urgent Care Clinic is available to the general public on a walk-in basis only, and only a limited number of "walk-in" appointments are available.

Walk-in patients should sign in at the front desk reception area by 7:30 a.m. Patients are treated on a first come - first served basis. The exact fee for emergency treatment varies from patient to patient. However, most emergency treatment is $125. We ask that you be prepared to pay at the time of your treatment. For your convenience, we accept cash (no personal checks), money orders, or major credit cards as a method for payment. Please call 713-500-4000, option 1 for current hours.

UT DENTISTS

UT Dentists is the faculty practice of The University of Texas Dental Branch at Houston. We are committed to providing the best that dentistry has to offer with quality care that combines the latest dental treatments and innovations with the most up-to-date technology.

This commitment is supported by a team of expert dentists, dental hygienists and other oral health care providers who consult with patients on every type of dental problem.

All of our dentists teach at the UT Dental Branch, and are therefore tuned into the newest approaches in dentistry.

We live by the philosophy that prevention and education are essential to overall wellness.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at 
713-500-4444.

STUDENT CLINICS

All services are performed by students under the careful supervision of our attending clinical faculty. Patients are accepted to the Dental Branch based on their need for either comprehensive ("complete") or emergency/limited care. Our student clinics include predoctoral dental, postdoctoral (advanced general dentistry and dental specialty), and dental hygiene. Through these clinics and student rotations located in outside facilities, we are able to provide care for a wide variety of patient needs.

Comprehensive Care

Consideration for comprehensive care begins with a screening appointment in the Assessment Clinic. The attending dentist will examine you to determine if you are a candidate for comprehensive care. The initial screening is by appointment only and at no charge.

If the initial screening indicates your dental needs can be treated in our clinics, you will then receive appropriate diagnostic x-rays. In most cases you will know at the completion of your initial appointment if you have been accepted into one of the Dental Branch's clinical programs.

The initial screening process takes approximately thirty minutes. If you are not a candidate for care, you are free to go at the completion of the assessment. The complete progression of screening, exam, and x-rays can take up to four hours.

We ask that all patients scheduled for an assessment screening please come prepared to pay for the diagnostic x-rays. To assist you in planning your budget, the maximum fees associated with the initial visit are generally in the $75 - $100 range. Please be prepared to pay at the time of your treatment. For your convenience, we accept cash (no personal checks), money orders, or major credit cards as a method for payment.

Patient Appointments

All services are performed by students under the careful supervision of our attending clinical faculty. Due to the educational nature of the Dental Branch, treatment will take longer to accomplish in comparison with what you might expect in private dental practices. Appointments are generally three (3) hours in length, and most patients will be expected to have an average of two appointments each month. It is essential that you keep all appointments. Treatment may be discontinued if you repeatedly cancel and/or fail to appear for appointments.

Scheduling hours are from 8:30 a.m - 11: a.m. and 1:30 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. daily until all appointments for the following week are booked.

 

 

The University of Texas Dental School supports Preventive Dentistry

PREVENTIVE DENTISTRY

WHY IS PREVENTIVE DENTISTRY IMPORTANT AND WHEN SHOULD
YOU START?

Preventive Dentistry means a healthy smile that requires fewer visits to the Dentist:

 

  1. Eating becomes more enjoyable because healthy mouths chew more easily
    and gain more nutrients from the foods they eat.
  2. You can also speak more quickly and clearly.
  3. People with healthier mouths have a better chance of general health, because disease in the mouth can endanger the rest of the body.
  4. A healthy mouth is more attractive, and you can have confidence that you are putting forth your best appearance.
  5. Preventive Dentistry is the first step to becoming cavity-free.

 

Preventive dentistry begins Regular Tooth brushing.
The earlier your dental visit, the better the chance of preventing dental disease and reducing your time in the Dentist’s Chair
Visit your dentist for a complete examination to lay the foundations for having the best in dental health.
