Dental Services in the Center for Student Health & Counseling (SHAC)  is staffed by licensed, experienced professionals who provide dental care with the student’s comfort and health in mind. Services are provided to SHAC eligible students on a fee-for-service basis. There is no student dental insurance plan, however the cost of services is greatly reduced compared to those of a private dental clinic. All service fees are billed to student accounts and Dental Services staff will assist students with information needed to submit a claim to their private insurer. However, the clinic is not responsible for the determination of the insurance company, nor will they be able to contact them on behalf of the student. Dental Services will also make supportive referrals if a student needs more intensive dental treatment.

Some of SHAC’s Dental Services include:

• Full comprehensive exams, x-rays, and cleanings

• Sealants

• Fillings (amalgam and white)

• Crowns, partials, and dentures

• Night guards

• Custom bleaching trays

• Oral surgery/wisdom teeth extraction

• Root canal therapy
