Dental assessments, including necessary radiographs (X-rays), are completed and reviewed by students and faculty. Referrals for evaluation by the patient's dentist are also provided.

Considerations for Special Conditions

Treatment in the clinic may not be provided if you are unable to produce sufficient documentation regarding the following conditions and/or if test levels and reports impact the safe delivery of dental hygiene care.

If you are receiving anticoagulant therapy and are taking blood thinners such as Coumadin (Warfarin), please bring your most recent INR test results with you.

If you are undergoing chemotherapy or cancer treatment, please consult your physician and obtain written consent to receive dental treatment.

If you have diabetes, please bring documentation of your most recent A1C blood level. It is required that this be no older than four months.

If you recently had a heart attack or have any heart problems (including recent stent placement), please bring written clearance from your doctor stating you are healthy enough for dental treatment and do not require pre-medication. If it is recommended that you pre-medicate before dental treatment, please do so according to your doctor's direction.

If you have had a hip, knee, or any joint replacement, please contact your physician to determine whether you need to take antibiotics before dental treatment. If it is not required, please bring a written letter from your doctor stating so.
