Services Offered

What type of dental care do you need?

As a patient at the Indiana University School of Dentistry, you have access to a full range of dental care. No matter what type of care you need, you can get it here—from cleanings and fillings to root canals, braces, and dentures.

The school’s services fall into three main categories: general dentistry, advanced care, and emergency care. All services are performed by students under the close supervision of faculty members, who are licensed dentists.

General dentistry

General dentistry includes preventive care such as cleanings as well as common procedures such as fillings and crowns. These services are provided in the school’s Comprehensive Care Clinics by third- and fourth-year dental students.

Advanced care

Patients who need care in a specific area of dentistry receive treatment in one of the school’s advanced care clinics. These areas include:

  • Endodontics (root canals)
  • Oral and maxillofacial surgery (extractions, reconstructive surgery)
  • Orthodontics (braces)
  • Pediatric dentistry (dentistry for children)
  • Periodontology (bone or gum disease)
  • Prosthodontics (dentures, dental implants)

Patients in the advanced care clinics are treated by graduate students who are receiving advanced training in one of these areas.

Emergency care

If you have a dental problem that requires immediate attention, you can visit the school’s Emergency Clinic, a walk-in clinic that sees patients five days a week.

Please note that the Emergency Clinic is for new patients only. If you are a current patient, call Patient Services at 317-274-7433 to make arrangements to get emergency care at the school.
