Case Western Reserve University’s dental clinic offering patient discounts during “Admitting Week”

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 plan during “Admitting Week,” Dec. 4-8.

Anyone at least 18 years old who has never enrolled as a patient at the dental clinic can receive a dental exam and X-rays at the school’s rates during Admitting Week and receive a $90 voucher to be redeemed toward future dental services as part of an accepted treatment plan.

Clinic patients can expect discounted services of 30 to 50 percent, depending on the procedure, compared to standard dental office rates.

Admitting Week services are by appointment only, at three time intervals: 10 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. The number of appointments available is limited. Call 216.368.8730.

The dental school’s clinic is 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.

The dental school, which has offered an Admitting Day for new patients for the last three years, expanded the promotion to a full week for the first time.

“We want to enhance access to care,” said Sorin Teich, associate professor in the Department of Comprehensive Care and associate dean for clinical operations. “This will provide the community more flexibility and the opportunity to improve oral health.”
