The Restorative Section provides patient care via several UCLA School of Dentistry clinics:
The General Clinic - More than 80 faculty in the Section are engaged in clinical teaching at both the Predoctoral Dental Clinic in Westwood and the Wilson-Jennings-Bloomfield UCLA Venice Dental Center. In the Predoctoral Dental Clinics, dental students treat a broad range of patients with differing needs under the close supervision of part and full time dental school faculty. Within the Predoctoral Dental Clinics, students have the option of performing complex esthetic dentistry, and the restoration of dental implants.
Advanced Restorative Dentistry Clinic - This clinic allows competent students the opportunity to treat more complex cases and increase their patient load during clinic sessions. Students work under the mentorship of Restorative faculty in a specially designated clinical area. Faculty provide support and advice as requested, however, students are encouraged to work more independently than in the general restorative dentistry clinic area.
Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) Clinic - Patients may elect to have treatment provided by residents, under the supervision of section faculty, in the AEGD Clinic in Westwood.
Center for Esthetic Dentistry (CED) - Patients with special esthetic needs are often treated in the CED Clinic by esthetic dentistry trainees under the close supervision of experts in the field of esthetic dentistry.
Faculty Group Dental Practice (FGDP) - Most of the Section's full-time faculty maintain a private practice setting, treating patients at the UCLA FGDP.
Venice Dental Center (VDC) - Patients may receive a full range of dental services at the Wilson-Jennings-Bloomfield UCLA VDC.
