Treatment provided by students is conducted under the close supervision of our teaching
faculty at The Dental College of Georgia.
Our students deliver a wide range of preventive and restorative care, including routine
exams, cleanings, fillings and crowns, bleaching, extractions, mouth guards, esthetic
treatments, root canals, implants, complete and partial dentures, and more.
Once accepted into the program and assigned, your student provider will create an
inclusive treatment plan so that you will understand treatment options, sequence,
informed consent, estimated costs, and time involved.
All of your dental needs can be met under one roof.
On average, fees in the student clinic are approximately one-third the usual and customary
dental fees charged in private practice, but appointments and the duration of treatment
are longer. Payment plans may be available for patients who qualify.
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.
You are expected to stay current with your financial obligations during your dental
