If you are accepted into the student program, you will be assigned to a student dentist
as soon as possible, but assignment may take up to six months. You may be asked to
be available several times a month, and these appointments may last up to four hours.
Patients must notify the student at least two school days in advance when it is necessary
to reschedule an appointment. Because of the rigid requirements on the student's time,
repeated tardiness or two broken appointments may result in termination of treatment.
As everyone treatment needs are unique, there is no way to predict length of treatment
until a treatment plan has been established. . Treatment such as surgery and healing
times can lengthen the time it takes to complete treatment however, you can estimate
that a typical patient’s case can take up to 12-18 months to complete.
