Senior & Special Care Clinic

University of Colorado School of Dental Medicine

The Senior & Special Care Clinic provides our patients with affordable, high-quality oral health care.

  • We treat seniors who are 65 years and older who also have other health concerns.
  • We also specialize in treating patients (16 years and older) with cognitive, developmental, medical, and physical conditions that may limit their ability to receive routine dental care.

The Senior & Special Care Clinic (SSCC), located in the CU School of Dental Medicine on the Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora, Colorado, operates under the direction and guidance of expert faculty. Both the clinic and the school are educational environments for dental students. In this clinic, students serve as patient providers, learning and gaining experience under faculty supervision.

Here are a few examples of the dental treatments provided in the SSCC:

  • Dentures, denture fittings and denture repairs;
  • Extractions;
  • Fillings;
  • Fluoride treatments;
  • General oral health care, like cleanings; and
  • Oral hygiene instructions.

The CU School of Dental Medicine has dental specialists under one roof. We work collaboratively with different departments and divisions within our own clinical settings. For patients who are needing sedation dentistry and operating room needs, we coordinate with our General Practice Residency, which is located on the first floor.
