Dental Team Care Clinic

The CU Dental Team Care Clinic provides thorough, comprehensive care at significantly discounted rates. Because we are a teaching facility, care is provided by dental students under the supervision of highly-skilled faculty who oversee all aspects of treatment. Most appointments are scheduled for three hours to allow time for the teaching process. However, this extra time means you get expert opinions from multiple dental professionals.​

Due to limited capacity, we are currently not screening new patients.

​Before becoming a patient, you will receive a free-of-charge screening exam to determine if your dental needs can be addressed by a supervised dental student or if you need specialized care at one of our advanced care clinics.

The screening exam will last approximately 1 hour 15 minutes and may include dental x-rays, if needed. X-rays cost up to $90, and payment will be due at time of the appointment. You may also bring x-rays from another dental provider if the x-rays were taken within the past 2 years.

To schedule a screening appointment, please call: (303) 724-2273

Please bring the following to your first visit:

  • Completed patient forms (will save you time at your first visit)
  • Insurance/Health First Colorado (formerly Medicaid) Card
  • Current x-rays (within the past two years)
  • List of medications and dosage information

Before your appointment, you will need to complete the virtual check-in process.

  • Please call us at (303) 724-6917 from your car, or outside the building (if you are using different transportation) when you arrive for your appointment.
  • We will ask you screening questions and let you know when you should enter the building's west entrance.
  • A CU Dental team member will also contact you the day before your appointment to ask screening questions and confirm your appointment.

    Your health and safety are important to us. The CU School of Dental Medicine has several safety protocols and requirements in place.

    If your answer is “yes” to any of the following, please contact your clinic to reschedule:
  • Have you had ANY OF THE FOLLOWING SYMPTOMS (not related to hay fever or seasonal allergies)?:
    • Fever >99.9ºF
    • Signs/symptoms of lower respiratory illness
    • Cough/shortness of breath/difficulty breathing 
    • Flu-like symptoms
    • Chills/repeated chills with shaking
    • Muscle pain/headache/sore throat
    • Runny nose/fatigue
    • New loss of taste or smell

  • Have you had contact with known or suspected COVID-19 cases in the last 14 days or anyone who is symptomatic?
  • Have you been diagnosed with COVID-19 in the last 14 days?

    Again, if your answer is yes to these questions, we will need to reschedule for another date.

    We look forward to seeing you and thank you for choosing the CU School of Dental Medicine.
