Pediatric Dental Clinic

UMP - Dental Clinic

Clinic Overview

Continuous, comprehensive, coordinated, collaborative.

That’s how we describe the care your child will receive at University of Minnesota Physicians Pediatric Dental Clinic. Like UMPhysicians’ Adult Dental Clinic, the care providers at our pediatric clinic specialize in complex cases and conditions. We’re adept at caring for young patients who are medically compromised because of a major surgery, cancer treatment or another significant medical procedure. But we also provide high-quality care for children with special health needs, disabilities or significant anxiety.

Construction of the pediatric clinic, which opened in April, 2012, was made possible by a $3.5 million gift from Delta Dental of Minnesota Trust. The 14-chair clinic–equipped with state-of-the-art patient monitoring technology for use by faculty and residents—stands as the Upper Midwest’s most advanced pediatric dental clinic. Patient care at the clinic is provided by residents supervised by University of Minnesota School of Dentistry faculty members. Many of our faculty members also have years of experience operating their own private practices in the Twin Cities community.

Our clinic is conveniently located across the street from the University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital, which is ranked among the state and nation’s best children’s hospitals by U.S. News & World Report.

But our pediatric clinic isn’t only for patients with underlying medical issues or complex cases. Breaking down medical access barriers is important to the staff and care providers at our pediatric clinic. For that reason, we often perform outreach to and provide dental care for under-served communities in Minnesota.
