Free Dental Services Available for UK Students

 

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Apr 11, 2017) – Being mentally and physically healthy enables students to perform at their peak. Oral health is often an aspect of health neglected during college years. To assist in improving the oral health, and overall health, of students, the University of Kentucky College of Dentistry will pilot a new service providing students at UK with easier access to select, no-cost dental care.

Students who are enrolled full-time or part-time and have paid their UK student health fee are eligible to receive dental care as part of the service currently being piloted. Dental exams, cleanings, select x-rays and simple restorative treatments will be available as part of the service. Additional dental treatments, if needed, are available for a fee. Students will need their UK ID at each dental appointment.

UKCD dental students will provide care under the direction of faculty and staff inside the DMD Student Clinic in the Dental Science Building. In an effort to reduce the wait time between making an appointment and being seen, appointments will be scheduled with the next available provider during normal clinic hours.
