The Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine is offering free and discounted dental care Feb. 4-5 as part of its bi-annual Admitting Days event.

The dental school’s main clinic will offer services to new patients who sign up for a comprehensive-care treatment plan.

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 cleaning ($25) during Admitting Days and receive a $100 voucher for future dental services as part of an accepted treatment plan.

Clean and Screen Day set at dental school

The Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine will offer its annual Clean and Screen day from 9 a.m. to noon, Saturday, Jan. 26.

The event, open to the public, offers new patients (age 18 and older) free dental cleanings and X-rays on a first-come, first-served basis. Patients will be treated by dental students, with supervision from dental school faculty members.

Patients also will receive a coupon for 50 percent off a new patient admitting fee (a $45 value). In addition, those interested can also enter a contest to win a tooth-whitening kit.

The dental clinic is at 2124 Cornell Road on the Case Western Reserve campus in Cleveland. For information, call 717.829.3450 or email cleanandscreen19@gmail.com.

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

Admitting Day services are by appointment only. Three time-slots are available: 10 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. both days. The number of appointments available is limited. Those interested are encouraged to call 216.368.6800 or 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 has been successfully offering Admitting Days for new patients for the last four years.

Ali Syed, the dental school’s admitting clinic director, said the number of patients has increased at each new Admitting Days event. Last September, more than 200 patients participated.

“We want to continue to enhance access to dental care, and this will provide the community with more flexibility and the opportunity to improve oral health,” he said.
