Patient Care

When you are a patient at the UI College of Dentistry and Dental Clinics, all of your care – general dentistry and specialty dental treatment can be coordinated under one roof. Children and adults can be seen in the student clinics at reduced fees or in our faculty private practice clinics.


Students complete their DDS degree in state of the art facilities with nationally-recognized faculty. The UI College of Dentistry and Dental Clinics is the only school in the nation to offer advanced education in all dental specialties as well as a residency in hospital dentistry.


Our dental research reflects innovations across the spectrum of diseases and oral health prevention:  soft tissue and oral cancer;  cariology & microbiology; craniofacial anomalies; biomaterials, bone & tissue engineering; and epidemiology, behavior, health policy and outcomes.


The Office of Alumni Relations provides services and assistance to dental and dental hygiene graduates.
