Everyone knows the importance of healthy teeth. However, many people do not seek dental care, even when they need it. This happens for a variety of reasons, including cost and accessibility.
Dental schools offer highly discounted, high quality dental care. At the UNMC College of Dentistry, education and patient care are our focus, not profit.
Here are six reasons you should consider UNMC for all your dental care needs:
1. You’ll get high quality care at an affordable cost
We charge a fraction of the normal cost for many dental services. We are able to do so because our mission is education; we are a teaching practice and not for profit.
2. You’ll be cared for by highly motivated dentists
Your care will be provided by student dentists in the final phases of their clinical training. You can be sure your dentist will treat you with close attention and care. Your dentist is ready to succeed!
3. Your dentist is supervised by top oral health experts
Dentists from UNMC supervise student dentists. You’ll benefit from having at least two dentists’ give input on your treatment plan. Your supervising dentist has years of experience and knows about the most recent techniques and research—a perk most affordable dental care options can’t offer.
4. Our team is dedicated to serving your unique patient needs
We place an emphasis on providing high quality, compassionate care to everyone, especially underserved groups. Our students are educated on how to effectively treat patients with special needs, the elderly, non-english speakers, and other special groups. Our students also are trained on how to help patients deal with dental anxiety.
5. State-of-the-art facilities and cutting-edge technology
One of the great benefits of receiving dental care at a dental school is the access you get to groundbreaking techniques and advanced technology. This means that you get cutting-edge dental care at affordable rates. We are at the forefront of patient care by acting as an early adopter of emerging practices.
6. A wide array of services
We educate our students in all aspects of oral health. This is a massive benefit to our patients, as they receive access to a large range of services. These include endodontics, orthodontics, pediatric dentistry, periodontics and prosthodontics.
