July  14, 2014

The Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry is now welcoming dental patients to its state-of-the-art clinics at 155 Fifth Street. 

Previously located in the Pacific Heights neighborhood, the Dugoni School of Dentistry has relocated all of its public dental clinics to its new South of Market building. The clinics offer a wide array of oral healthcare services including cleanings, fillings, dentures, digital X-rays, cosmetic dentistry, facial pain treatment, orthodontics, pediatric dentistry services and dental care for people with special needs.  

KiosksThe seven-story, 395,000-square-foot San Francisco campus contains general and specialty dental clinics for people of all ages, as well as flexible classrooms, lecture halls, a state-of-the-art dental Simulation Laboratory, research labs, a cafe and support spaces. The campus will also house university programs in audiology, music therapy, food studies and other subjects.  

With nearly 1,000 dental students, faculty and staff, the Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry anticipates serving approximately 10,000 patients each year. The school's new location is close to the BART and Muni Powell Street Station and other public transportation lines, offering easier accessibility to patients visiting from throughout the region.

The Dugoni School of Dentistry delivers comprehensive patient care in a comfortable and supportive environment consistent with its humanistic approach to education. Patients are each assigned to a student dentist who assumes responsibility for the patient's general dental treatment, consultation and referral for specialty care. Students and residents (who are licensed dentists receiving advanced specialty training) provide care under the close supervision of expert faculty. As is typical at academic dental clinics, fees are lower than those charged by private-practice dental offices.
