If this is an option for you, the number is 503 494-8867 There are a limited number of appointments available Monday through Friday.

Comprehensive Care Clinic: Patients seeking general dentistry services to meet their comprehensive oral health needs should make an appointment for Admitting by calling 503-494-8867 Monday through Friday. The screening visit includes x-rays so that your oral health needs can be determined. This appointment could last up to 3 hours. Patients should come prepared to pay up to $46.00 for the screening examination and necessary x-rays. Patients that come to their appointment without payment will be asked to re-schedule. If the patient has had a recent set of x-rays taken at another provider, the patient must bring a digital version on a disk, or have their prior provider contact sodrad@ohsu.edu for information on how to send images online. If the patient or provider fails to provide the x-rays in the correct format prior to screening, the appointment will be rescheduled unless the patient is willing to pay for a new set to be taken. Treatment is provided by dental students under the supervision of faculty dentists and hygienists. Not all patients are accepted for care as the patient’s needs must be appropriate for student dentists to provide. When you are ready to make the appointment please call 503-494-8867.
