The Comprehensive Care Clinic is designed to provide senior dental students with the
knowledge and skills necessary to become competent in all aspects of general dentistry
by performing a wide variety of clinical procedures in an environment that simulates
dental practice and enables them to make independent clinical decisions.
The educational experience will be provided in an open and supportive environment emphasizing a humanistic approach (respect, tolerance, understanding, and concern for others fostered by mentoring, advising and small group interaction)
At the same time, we will provide the best dental care possible using a patient-centered approach which considers the patient’s social, economic, and emotional circumstances in making treatment decisions.
We emphasize efficiency and teamwork, utilizing dental auxiliaries in a cost-effective manner with the general dentist serving as a role model for students in making treatment and referral decisions.
