COVID-19 Update for the School of Dentistry Oral Health Clinic
Dentistry and Dental Hygiene Programs

Dear Patients:

Our University of Alberta, School of Dentistry Oral Health Clinic has been advised by the Alberta Dental Association & College that due to the provincial government declaration of a 'State of Public Health Emergency', the clinic, and its providers, will only provide treatment for emergency dental cases.

We may provide emergency dental care to our active patients of record. A dental emergency is defined as any pain and/or swelling, and/or conditions if left untreated in a timely manner could become a more significant health burden. Please call (780) 407-5550 if you have a dental emergency.

In addition to these measures, we will continue to screen patients who have the following:

  • Flu-like symptoms (i.e., fever, cough, sore throat)
  • Have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19

The hours of operation for emergency care are:

  • Tuesday 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
  • Thursday 10:00 am - 1:00 pm in


Morning appointments begin at 9:00 am and afternoon appointments begin at 1:30 pm. Patients are requested to arrive 15 minutes prior their scheduled appointment time.

Appointments may be rescheduled with at least 48 hours' notice. Appointments that are cancelled/rescheduled with less than 48 hours' notice will be recorded as a missed appointment. Please note that patients will be dismissed from the program after having missed three appointments.

Dentistry Program - We are currently seeking patients in need of root canals, extractions and complete dentures (patients without natural teeth). If you require one of these specific treatments, a screening appointment may be required to determine eligibility for our program i.e: confirmation of treatment required.
