James B. Edwards College of Dental Medicine
Patients who seek affordable and comprehensive dental care choose to receive their treatment through the Dental Student Clinics. Students work directly under the supervision of full and part time faculty. All patients are assured of receiving quality care and personal attention from the faculty and staff. Treatment will take longer than in a private office, therefore, patients are asked to be available for three hour sessions on a regular basis.
In order to become a patient of the Dental Student Teaching Clinics, one must be screened by a faculty member.
Adult Care (14 years and older)
The first step in becoming a comprehensive care patient in the College of Dental Medicine is to arrange a screening appointment by calling (843) 792-2101, option 2 between 8:30 AM and 4:00 PM, Monday through Friday. The College of Dental Medicine screens on average 40 to 50 patients per week. If you call for a screening and are unable to obtain one the first time, please call again as the appointments tend to go quickly, but the books are continually opened on a weekly basis.
