Free and discounted dental services are being offered by Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine’s main clinic to new patients who sign up for a comprehensive care treatment plan during “Admitting Days,” Sept. 17 or 18.

Eligible recipients must be at least 18 and have never enrolled as a patient at the dental clinic. That's it. That's all you need to be eligible for free dental work.

All who are eligible can receive a free dental exam, free X-rays and optional cleaning for $25 and receive a $100 voucher toward future dental services as part of an accepted treatment plan.

Following X-rays and the exam, the clinic will schedule each patient’s next appointment aimed at crafting a personalized, detailed treatment plan.

Depending on the procedure, these services are being offered at discounts of 40 to 50 percent in comparison to standard dental office rates. CWRU's dental students and residents treat more than 8,000 patients a year at discounted prices, including university students, employees and the general public.

All patients are treated by third- and fourth-year dental students and residents, with supervision from dental school faculty members.

“Dental health is a vital aspect of overall health, and this is an opportunity to show patients the benefits of seeing a dentist regularly,” said Ali Syed, assistant professor of Oral and Maxillofacial Medicine and Diagnostic Sciences at the dental school in a press release. “It’s important for people to understand the difference between regular dental care and when they need emergency dental care.”

Admitting Day’s services are by appointment only, with two time-slots available: 10 a.m. or 1 p.m. The number of appointments is limited, and appointments can be made by calling 216-368-6800.

The dental school’s clinic is located at 2124 Cornell Road on the Case Western Reserve campus in Cleveland.
