Professional Care

UTHealth School of Dentistry takes pride in the quality and affordability of care and service provided to the general public. Our patients are cared for by professional, friendly staff to help you achieve optimal oral health.

The School of Dentistry offers three levels of service in general dentistry. If cost is your major concern, our Student Clinics provide the most affordable care, but please allow extra time for each appointment, as students work at a slow and careful pace under faculty supervision. If your time is precious, appointments with our Faculty Practice (UT Dentists) typically last about 45 minutes. If your needs fall somewhere in between, take a look at our Graduate Clinics, where new dentists gain experience and expertise in their chosen specialties. Patients who are experiencing dental pain can visit our walk-in clinic for limited urgent care

    We respect your rights as a patient and recognize that you are an individual with unique healthcare needs. As your partners in oral health, we have identified the specific rights you can expect while in our care.

  • Patient Privacy


    We protect the privacy and security of our patients’ health information in accordance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).

  • Language Assistance Services


    Our clinics will take reasonable steps to provide translation services to patients with limited English proficiency upon request. This service will assist with discussion of your dental care. Family or friends cannot act as translators.

  • Release of Records


    Patients can receive copies of their dental record and/or radiographs (x-rays) upon request. A photo ID is required to process all requests for record release or transfer.



The School of Dentistry works with a variety of community partners to reach the most vulnerable populations, because those who need oral health care the most are sometimes the least able to access it.

Our Ronald McDonald Care Mobile® travels to specific Houston-area schools and other special events to treat children in need, thanks to support from our pediatric partners, Communities in Schools and CHRISTUS Foundation for HealthCare. Meanwhile, our adult mobile dental van makes scheduled visits throughout Houston and to East Texas to treat patients who have limited access to care. Since 2008, we've provided nearly 200,000 patient treatments during nearly 70,000 patient visits to our community outreach sites.

For more information, please contact Community Outreach Director Margo Melchor, RDH, EdD.
