About the Patient Clinics

Student Clinics

DMD

The University of Louisville School of Dentistry operates six general dentistry comprehensive care groups. Once becoming a patient, you will be assigned to one of these six groups. Each group has a Group Manager, Office Manager, Scheduler, Floor Coordinator and Assistants in addition to the student doctors.

Dental Hygiene

The University of Louisville Dental Hygiene Program focuses on providing preventive and therapeutic services designed to achieve and maintain oral health. Clinical, preventive and educational services are delivered under the supervision of full and part-time faculty. However, due to the learning environment and level of supervision, appointments may be lengthier than in a private dental practice and may require multiple appointments.

These clinics are located at the 501 South Preston Street [view directions]

Specialty Clinics

Implant

If the patient is a good candidate for dental implants, this treatment option can be completely achieved at ULSD - from 'state of the art' iCAT radiographic techniques - to skilled surgical placement - to the supervised complete restoration.

We have the unique ability to provide consultation and treatment planning with several doctors present at the same time. The teamwork approach of our faculty through UofL Dental Associates provides patients with the best possible care with a minimum of inconveniences as all treatments can be provided in our facility.
