Special Patient Care (Hospital Dentistry)

Drs. Evelyn Chung, Eric Sung and resident Dr. Reeva Mincer

The Special Patient Care Clinic, formerly known as the Hospital Dentistry Clinic, provides advanced comprehensive general dentistry for patients with severe medical, physical, and mental problems (pre and post organ transplant patients, cancer patients, immunocompromised patients, special needs patients). This clinic also provides dental services under IV sedation in an operating room setting, for patients unable to receive treatment in a routine dental setting. Dental services are also provided on an emergency basis after hours for both in-patients and out-patients.

Faculty cost of care is very comparable to LA-area private practice dentists and specialists. Post-graduate cost of care is lower than the private sector.

Social Work

The Department of Social Welfare and the Special Patient Care Clinic (SPCC) at UCLA School of Dentistry are building a relationship and collaborating to re-imagine patient-centered care. Our goal is to meet patients where they are and to increase social support as individuals navigate the healthcare system. In building this relationship, we hope to bring multidisciplinary and integrated care to address equity and the social determinants of health.  

We offer the support of a licensed clinical social worker and social work graduate student in the SPCC. Social work is on-site most Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, as well as Thursday mornings.
