About Our Dental Care Center
Stony Brook University School of Dental Medicine and its Dental Care Center, an Article 28 Diagnostic and Treatment Center, is the largest provider of primary oral health care services in Suffolk County. As a result of its modest fees and participation in dental insurance programs, the Dental Care Center has become the safety net for the underserved, the pediatric and geriatric populations, patients with systemic conditions that impact upon, or are affected by their oral health, and those patients with special needs. These vulnerable groups require primary oral health care services to maintain their oral and systemic health.
The Dental Care Center is a state-of-the-art facility for the Stony Brook University School of Dental Medicine. It is the primary training site for dental professionals providing excellence in oral health care services for the residents of Long Island. In our clinical teaching facility, well trained students and post graduate residents offer treatment under direct faculty guidance and supervision. The postgraduate residency programs offer specialty services, which focus on the management of advanced clinical cases. Specialty clinics are offered for the management of people with special needs.
An entire range of dental care is available at the Dental Care Center. All new patients receive an oral examination to detect existing or potential problems. Based on the findings of the examination the following services will be provided.
Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery
Special care for phobic patients and patients with disabilities will be provided using modern methods of anesthesia (oral/IV-sedation).
Advanced treatment for patients with needs for esthetic dentistry, implant-supported rehabilitations and the use of modern technology (digital, radiographic imaging, CAD-CAM, lasers) will also be provided.
We offer flexibility in appointments and emergency visits.
