Dental Clinic

The clinic offers affordable dental care to individuals (age 2 or older) who do not have dental insurance. We verify that family income is at or below 200% of the federal poverty level. All patients under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Our goal is to prepare Advanced Dental Therapists, while providing quality care.

All treatment is provided by Advanced Dental Therapy students, under the supervision of Minnesota licensed dentists. Treatment in our clinic will take longer than provided in traditional offices. Plan on approximately 3 hours each visit.Treatment times are dependent upon the patient’s individual care plan. Patients typically need multiple appointments.
