Screening Clinic

Information Line: 214-828-8441 - message only

Thank you for your interest in becoming a patient at Texas A&M School of Dentistry. We are a teaching institution in which treatment is provided by students and supervised by licensed clinical faculty. A screening appointment is necessary to determine if your oral health needs match the educational needs of our students.

Screening Appointments - By Phone

If you are interested in a screening appointment please call 214-828-8981 and an appointment will be scheduled for the next available date. The screening appointment can take up to 4 hours.

Please DO NOT call any other number at the school for appointment or information. Appointments cannot be made at other numbers, and your calls cannot be forwarded.

Please note:

$114.00 for registration, screening and x-ray fees is non-refundable. There is also a $200 treatment deposit required on the first visit. 

You will need to bring $314.00 for your screening appointment. Acceptance as a potential undergraduate patient, or referral to our graduate clinics for additional screening, does not guarantee that you will be assigned to a dental student or resident for treatment. No dental care will be rendered during screening exams.

IMPORTANT! Please read:

Fees for service are not based on income and are due in full each visit.

  • Accepted forms of payment are cash, check, money order, Master Card, Visa, Discover, or American Express.
  • Insurance, including Medicaid/Medicare is not accepted as a form of payment for adult dental care.
  • There are no payment plan options available.
  • No children are allowed in the adult clinic areas or can be left unattended in the waiting areas.

After the screening appointment

As a teaching institution, we assign a limited number of patients to a dental student based on his/her educational needs; it may take several months before your first appointment. The student or his/her Patient Appointment Associate (PAA) will contact you to set up your first oral diagnosis appointment.

  • Parking is available in the surrounding area. (Please read all parking lot signs carefully).
  • Patients are only accepted for the completion of ALL dental care needed.
  • You are responsible for seeking all emergency/immediate dental care outside the school until you are assigned to a student for treatment.
