Referring your Patient to the School of Dentistry

For general dental care, your patient may call Patient Admissions & Emergency Services to schedule an initial visit.  Please provide your patient with a copy of their x-rays (panorex, full mouth series and/or bitewings), if taken within the past two years, to bring to their appointment.  X‐rays can be emailed to the School of Dentistry at

For specialized treatment, refer your patient to a Graduate Dentist Clinic or Dental Faculty Clinic.  Please call for specific instructions regarding referral.
