Thank you for your interest in becoming a patient at Texas A&M College 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

Applicants may call 214-828-8981 for screening appointments for the following week until all appointments for that week are filled.

Please DO NOT call any other number at the college 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.

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.
