The Student Bridge Clinic Returns for Another Year

Skilled, compassionate patient care is what sets UNC Adams School of Dentistry and Carolina Dentistry apart from other practices and dental schools, and these efforts often help those most in need in our communities. This type of outreach makes a difference for patients across North Carolina, and for the third consecutive year, ASOD and Carolina Dentistry will offer its Bridge Clinic to serve those in need on Friday afternoons August through December.

The clinic is faculty and student staffed and offers bridge work at up to 75% off typical prices for this type of restoration. Patients interested in participating in the clinic must register ahead of time and attend an afternoon screening appointment August 9 or August 23 prior to the bridge clinic appointment. Walk-ins are welcome for screening appointments.

These clinics benefit both patients and students, allowing patients to get top-notch dental work at lower than average rates and for students to gain more experience in restoration work. It also allows students to learn more about the communities they will serve in their professional lives.

“Our fall semester Senior Bridge Clinic provides the Adams School of Dentistry with an opportunity to give back to our community and patients, while educating our students. The financial incentive of 75% off of our usual student fees for bridgework allows us to reach more people,” said Lisa Stoner, DDS, associate dean of clinic operations. “One of the greatest gifts that we can give as dental providers is a healthy and pleasing smile. Last year’s clinic was a success on this front, allowing both our students and patients to have experienced that joy.”
