Before becoming a patient at the UCLA Dental Clinics, you will be screened to determine if the General Clinic (pre-doctoral) is a good fit for your needs. The screening is free-of-charge. After screening and if accepted as a patient, you will be assigned to a student dentist and supervising faculty member from the UCLA School of Dentistry.
Once the screening process is complete, and if you are accepted as a potential teaching case in our student clinic, you will be scheduled for a comprehensive oral examination to assess the general state of your oral health and create a full-mouth treatment plan. The fee for the oral examination is $95 in the General Clinic, which includes a full mouth set of X-rays.
If your case is complex, you may need specialized care at one of our Residency Clinics (including specialties), the Faculty Group Dental Practice, or possibly the private sector.
