The Screening Appointment

Patient Selection and Screening Appointment Results
Your first visit will be a Screening appointment.  This short examination allows us to determine your dental needs and your suitability as a patient for the clinic.  In some cases the type of treatment needed by the patient is too complex for our students.  If you are suitable and wish to become a patient we will assign you to a student who will contact you to set up an appointment for a detailed examination.  The length of time between screening and beginning of treatment varies based on the needs of the students, your requirements, and the time of the academic year.

Submitting a Screening Card
If you wish to become a patient please complete a Screening Registration Card.  Be sure to fill in all the sections. After we receive your information a staff member will contact you to arrange a screening appointment.  Wait time may be up to 12 months depending on needs of students and number of applications.

If you are unable to complete the above on-line Screening Registration Card, you may obtain one by contacting the Dental Clinic at 519.661.3326 or by email at
