About the Twilight Dental Clinic for Kids
Receiving high-quality dental care is easy at the Twilight Dental Clinic for Kids offered by the UK College of Dentistry. The clinic offers convenient after school appointments at reduced fees. Additional fee reductions may be available based on family income.
Your child will be seen by a student dentist who is entering his or her third year of training at the UK College of Dentistry. Student dentists work under the close supervision of pediatric dentists and pediatric dental residents.
Your child’s student dentist will provide the following services:
- A thorough examination of the child’s teeth, gums and mouth, complete with dental X-rays, if recommended. X-rays are recommended only when needed to evaluate and protect your child’s dental health.
- Based on the findings of the initial assessment, a dental health plan with recommendations for the next steps in dental care as well as an estimate of costs.
- Any needed treatments, including fillings for cavities and teeth cleaning and polishing followed by a fluoride treatment.
- Hygiene instructions on the correct way to brush and floss teeth for cleaner, healthier teeth and gums.
