New Patients

At your initial screening appointment, you will be assessed to determine if you are a suitable patient for our students.  Please see below a notice which is posted in all Faculty clinics regarding patient suitability:

Notice To All Patients and Prospective Patients

Patients and prospective patients are advised that not everyone is suitable to become or remain a patient in the teaching clinics of the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry Dental Clinics due to the teaching requirements for our students.  The following criteria may indicate unsuitability:

Prospective patients are reviewed on entry to the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry dental clinics and periodically thereafter.  They may be found to be unsuitable to be treated in the Schulich Medicine & Dentistry dental clinics or, due to the criteria above, may be asked to seek dental care in an alternative facility after being a patient of the Faculty clinics.
