DCG Patient Services

We are pleased that you are interested in receiving dental care in our school. The Dental College of Georgia at Augusta University is a teaching institution. Our goals are to teach dental students, provide quality dental care for our patients, and research health issues that will keep our profession in the forefront of scientific knowledge.

Treatment Options

You and your family will receive compassionate, patient-centered care. Our dentists offer general and specialized care for all ages.

You can choose from these care options based on your dental needs, finances, and availability:

Faculty members, including general dentists and specialists, provide direct patient care in an educational-practice setting. Fees are comparable to those in private practices in our area. To schedule an appointment with a Dental Associates dentist, call 706-721-2696.  Click here to learn more.

Residents are licensed dentists who are continuing their training in a specialty program. Care is provided under the supervision of experienced and certified, specialty clinical faculty. Patients whose treatment may be too complex or time-consuming for a dental student may be offered the opportunity to be treated by a resident. The fees for treatment by a resident are higher than those charged in the student clinic, but less than you might expect to pay elsewhere. The care provided by a resident will generally take less time than with our dental students. 

Patients are treated by dental students under the direct supervision of licensed dentists. Individuals are accepted as patients after a screening appointment based on their treatment needs and their availability. Fees in this program are the lowest of all the school’s programs (approximately 60 percent lower than private practice), but the time commitment is the greatest.

Children 13 and under and Special Health Care Needs Children (SHCN) under 21 are seen in our Pediatric Dentistry Clinic.  Call (706) 721-2716 for an appointment. Click here to learn more.

If your needs can be resolved in a student teaching program, and if your schedule will allow you to be here for extended appointments, we would like to accept you for treatment.
