Become a Patient

Interested individuals are encouraged to either call us at (951) 571-6435 or contact us. New patients will be scheduled for a screening only appointment so that the dental hygiene faculty can assess your dental hygiene needs.

Individuals, who have needs beyond the skill levels of our students, will be referred out to the general practice settings. Once the new patient has been through the screening process, they will be assigned to a dental hygiene student who will schedule an appointment. Patients are required to provide their most recent dental radiographs (both a full-mouth series and bitewing). The assigned dental hygiene students will assist patients with this. Students work at a slower pace that licensed practitioners as they are developing their skills and expertise. To assure that the services being provided are at the highest quality possible; faculty members will be checking each step of the process. Therefore, appointments can last between 1.5 to 2.5 hours and there will be multiple appointments needed to complete the assessment and cleaning process.

  • Provide honest and complete information on your medical and dental history.
  • To ask questions to better understand treatment options.
  • To give at least 24 hours for any cancellation of an appointment.
  • To seek routine care annually from a dentist.
  • To obtain any previous radiographs.
