The New Year has started and it's a great time to focus on healthy habits, including good oral health!

The adult general dentistry clinics at University of the Pacific, Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry in San Francisco are now accepting patients for screening appointments. Prospective patients can benefit from a free introductory screening and exam, which provides an opportunity to meet with a dental professional and ask questions about oral health. At the screening appointment, patients will learn a bit more about the treatments offered and costs associated with care. The school offers a wide array of comprehensive dental services, from check-ups and cleanings to fillings, cosmetic dentistry, implants, dentures and more.

All care at the Dugoni School is performed by dental students or residents under close supervision of faculty experts. The cost of dental care is about 30-40% less expensive than a typical Bay Area private dental office.

Patients with flexible schedules are encouraged, as treatment typically takes longer than at a private dental clinic. Dental students work under the supervision of faculty, ensuring quality care at affordable prices. 

Most private insurance plans are accepted. Flexible no-interest payment plans are available for qualified patients. The clinic also accepts cash, checks and all major credit cards. 

Appointments are required; call 415.929.6501 to make your appointment. To learn more about our dental services click here. The clinics are located at 155 Fifth Street (at Minna) in San Francisco's South of Market neighborhood, approximately 1.5 blocks from the Powell Street BART/Muni station.
