Registration and information
The information and registration staff is available to register new and returning patients in addition to scheduling future appointments and check-ups.
A visit to one of the screening clinics is the first step in becoming a regular patient at UoD’s College of Dentistry. During the screening visit a comprehensive oral examination is performed. The patient will then be referred to the appropriate clinic according to his or her dental needs.
Emergency dental clinics are available five days a week from Sunday to Thursday. Patients who need an emergency dental procedure need to check in with one of the registration desks prior to being helped. Registration desks are located in both Building One and Building Two.
The teaching clinics operate according to UoD’s academic calendar. Dental students, who are closely supervised by experienced faculty members, provide dental treatment. The treatment may require several appointments to be completed.
