UTHealth School of Dentistry has begun reopening in phases, starting with the Summer Session. To keep everyone safe, the school has instituted new safety measures to comply with local, state and federal requirements and best practices. A detailed plan is available at

At this time, classes continue to be conducted online and our clinics remain closed, except to provide emergency treatment to patients of record. Our priority is completing care for nearly 6,000 patients whose treatments were in progress when we had to close for the pandemic. Updates will be posted here as available.

UTSD faculty, staff, residents and students will find more detailed information on the UTSD intranet and in UT email.
