The UAMS Delta Dental of Arkansas Foundation Oral Health Clinic offers both dental (restorative) and hygiene (preventative) oral health care services by licensed dentists, dental residents & dental hygienists.

UAMS Staff Dentists

Several licensed dentists are on staff at the UAMS Delta Dental of Arkansas Foundation Oral Health Clinic to provide comprehensive care to patients.  The dentists on staff are in network with select dental  insurance providers.  The UAMS Delta Dental of Arkansas Foundation Oral Health Clinic staff dentists can provide an array of services including, but not limited to:

  • Crowns
  • Dentures/Partials
  • Fillings
  • Endodontic (Root Canal) Therapy
  • Extractions

UAMS Dental Residents

If you qualify after an initial screening, you may choose to be treated by a Dental Resident.  Dental treatment is performed by graduates of accredited dental programs.

Being treated by a Dental Resident will provide a 25% discount over the Oral Health Clinic fee schedule.  Payment options are available for third party (dental insurance) and self insured patients.

UAMS Registered (Licensed) Dental Hygienists

Patients wishing to file insurance for a routine cleaning & exam, extensive periodontal treatment, and other preventative oral health care services can be treated by a registered dental hygienist in the UAMS Delta Dental of Arkansas Foundation Oral Health Clinic.  Patients seen by a registered dental hygienist in the UAMS Delta Dental of Arkansas Foundation Oral Health Clinic will likely experience a shorter appointment time than those that are seen by students that are training in the UAMS Dental Hygiene Student Clinic.
