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 can be 12 months or longer depending on needs of students and number of applications.

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