College of Dentistry David B. Kriser Dental Center

Clinical Care

With approximately 300,000 patient visits annually to the NYU Dental Clinics—more than any other dental school in the United States and Canada—and perhaps the most extensive outreach programs in the country, NYUCD is the largest provider of comprehensive oral health care in New York State and the nation. The College’s clinics attract a multiethnic, multicultural population that comes from every borough in New York City and beyond. Each year, 30,000 new patients register for treatment. As a result of this uniquely available, large, and heterogeneous population pool, the clinical experience gained by NYU dental students is very diverse.

Another distinguishing feature of clinical care at NYUCD is the “clinical continuum,” which refers to the fact that students join group practices very early in their training and continue to work within the same group practice framework throughout their dental education program, thereby ensuring continuity of patient care and gaining invaluable real-world experience.
In addition, because NYUCD has affiliations with major hospitals and long-term care facilities throughout the New York metropolitan area, students receive a rich and diversified hospital experience, which teaches them the role of dentistry within the hospital and within the framework of total health care. They become knowledgeable in hospital protocol and procedures with special emphasis on the emergency room, the operating room, the recovery room, and the laboratories.
