Patients are treated by licensed dentists who are continuing their clinical and didactic training in periodontics. Faculty who have an average of over 20 years of experience practicing and teaching periodontics to supervise each periodontal resident. Patient treatment plans are based on the latest evidence-based research and tailored to each patient’s needs.

The Graduate Periodontics Clinics is based off a referral process. You must obtain a referral in order to be seen. Please send your referral to sdmreferral@ucdenver.edu. After your referral has been sent, please allow up to two weeks for a call to schedule from the Residency Coordinator. If after the two weeks are up and you have not been contacted, please call (303) 724-7009 for the status of your referral.

Please bring the following to your first visit:

  • Completed patient forms (will save you time at your first visit)
