Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine’s main clinic is offering discounted services to new patients who sign up for a comprehensive care treatment plan during “Admitting Days,” Sept. 17 or 18.

Anyone at least 18 years old who has never enrolled as a patient at the dental clinic can receive a free dental exam, free X-rays and optional cleaning for $25 during Admitting Days and receive a $100 voucher toward future dental services as part of an accepted treatment plan.

Clinic patients can expect discounted services of 40 to 50 percent, depending on the procedure, compared to standard dental office rates.

Admitting Day’s services are by appointment only, with two time-slots available: 10 a.m. or 1 p.m. The number of appointments is limited; please call 216-368-6800.

The dental school’s clinic is located at 2124 Cornell Road on the Case Western Reserve campus in Cleveland.

Each year, the dental school’s students and residents treat more than 8,000 patients, including university students, employees and the general public, at discounted prices.

Patients are treated by third- and fourth-year dental students and residents, with supervision from dental school faculty members.

Following X-rays and the exam, the clinic will schedule each patient’s next appointment aimed at crafting a personalized, detailed treatment plan.

“Dental health is a vital aspect of overall health, and this is an opportunity to show patients the benefits of seeing a dentist regularly,” says Ali Syed, assistant professor of Oral and Maxillofacial Medicine and Diagnostic Sciences at the dental school. “It’s important for people to understand the difference between regular dental care and when they need emergency dental care.”
