The Dental Clinic, located on the second floor of the W. Lloyd Wright Student Wellness Center, emphasizes patient education to prevent disease and provides treatment options when procedures are needed. Dental treatment is provided in the same non-threatening, responsive, and considerate manner that students have come to expect of all health care services at the Coulter Student Health Center.

The Dental Clinic is staffed by a dentist, a dental assistant, and a dental hygienist and provides basic dental services such as exams, cleaning, X-rays, restorations and education regarding good dental hygiene.


Referrals are made to qualified community specialists, as needed, for services such as wisdom teeth extractions, root canals, crowns, bridges, dentures, periodontal evaluations, orthodontics, and TMD or TMJ problems. These services are not available at the Dental Clinic.
