Patient Care

Patient-Centered Care

Rutgers School of Dental Medicine (RSDM) provides a full range of oral health services while training the next generation of dentists. Our student and faculty providers strive to deliver care that highlights the importance of clinicians and patients working together. We emphasize communication, compassion and collaboration and work to educate patients about treatment options and preventive care. We respect patients’ values, including their cultural and religious beliefs. At our clinics, we offer high-quality care which, when provided by predoctoral students, is much more affordable than private practices. But services are not free. RSDM accepts Medicaid plans, but we do not accept private insurance. To schedule an initial appointment and evaluation call 973-972-4242. If you experience delays due to high call volume or email rsdmscreening@sdm.rutgers.edu.
