Rutgers School of Dental Medicine Dental Clinics
The Rutgers School of Dental Medicine Dental Clinics provide a full range of oral health services while also training the next generation of dentists. Patients are an active part of treatment and receive treatment options and preventive care. We emphasize communication, compassion and collaboration. We respect patients’ values, including their cultural and religious beliefs.
Clinic hours are Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
To schedule your first appointment and evaluation, call 973-972-4242. If you experience delays due to high call volume, email [email protected]. Please provide your name and phone number; an administrative assistant will return your call to set up an appointment.
Our dental clinics are staffed by dental students who are under the ever-present guidance and supervision of faculty. Therefore, treatment typically takes longer than it would at a private dental office. Your screening visit can take up to four hours to complete, so please arrive promptly and devote enough time.
Referrals to our specialists should be sent to the emails below. Please scan the referral and attach it to your email. Include contact information and a staffer will respond.
