Graduate Periodontics Clinic


The CU Graduate Periodontics Clinic provides comprehensive treatment for all oral health issues related to the gum and bone tissues at prices that are typically 25-50% less than private practice periodontists.

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 supervise each periodontal resident. Patient treatment plans are based on the latest evidence-based research and tailored to each individual 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)
  • A written referral from your dentist
  • Insurance/Health First Colorado (formerly Medicaid) Card
  • Current x-rays (within the past two years)

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

  • Please call us at (303) 724-7877 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
