Becoming a Patient
The Dental Clinics of the University of Illinois at Chicago, College of Dentistry offer a complete range of quality dental and oral health services. We are committed to serving the oral health needs of Chicago and neighboring communities, however due to our restricted capacity; we must limit the number of patients seen daily.
The state of Illinois has passed legislation recently that eliminates and limits coverage of adult dental Medicaid services. As of July 1, 2012 coverage for most adult dental procedures has been eliminated. Minimum diagnostic fees, which include an exam and radiograph (x-ray) are required at the initial appointment.
Comprehensive Care (Adult)
Screening for our Comprehensive Care program is by APPOINTMENT ONLY. To schedule your appointment, please call 312.996.1265 Monday through Friday. Because of the high volume of calls we receive, it may be necessary to call several times to connect with scheduling personnel.
The fee for a screening evaluation and panoramic x-ray is due on the date of your screening appointment. The college accepts cash, credit/debit card, or checks.
Screenings may be limited due to student breaks, holidays, licensing exams and graduation.
