At any LLUSD Student Clinic, you will be treated by students with close supervision by faculty. Our faculty dentists are highly respected experts in their oral healthcare specialties. Our faculty clinicians are registered dental hygienists, dentists and physicians. Each of these highly qualified and experienced individuals are devoted to ensuring the same competence in our students.
Our clinicians in training work with the clinical faculty to learn compassionate care and the latest in dental procedures as they treat our patients with valuable service. Our patients place their trust in our student-faculty teams; and, with expert supervision, our students deliver the care you expect.
Under the supervision of licensed faculty dentists (DDS) and dental hygienists (RDH), our dental hygiene students take X-rays, provide cleanings, perform root planings and give patient oral healthcare instruction. Students in our dental hygiene program are required to complete a minimum of two years of dental science beyond their undergraduate education.
At our General Dentistry clinic, third and fourth-year dental students treat patients with faculty oversight. These students have completed a substantial number of dental science classes, laboratory hours and other training provide treatment to our patients. Student clinicians are supervised by experienced faculty dentists (DDS). Their patient services are documented and applied toward completion of the Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) program.
