The first step toward becoming a patient is to schedule your initial examination. During this visit, your medical history will be recorded, and brief physical and dental examinations will be performed to determine your eligibility. If you are eligible to participate in our program, you will be assigned to a student in our Predoctoral or Postdoctoral Clinics, depending upon your needs. At your next appointment, your student doctor will complete a comprehensive evaluation under faculty supervision, and he or she will develop a personalized treatment plan. If this treatment plan is in accordance with our educational needs, you will be accepted as a patient at Penn Dental Medicine, and treatment will begin at your next appointment.
If you are not accepted into our program, we will recommend a dental treatment that we feel is in your best interest to pursue.
