The Future Is Interdisciplinary
Bringing Primary Care to Dental Patients


NYU's Nursing Faculty Practice opened its doors in the fall of 2006 in the NYU College of Dentistry. Since then, the practice has attracted hundreds of patients of all ages and across the cultural spectrum who are seeking access to primary care from an NYU nurse practitioner. Referred by College of Dentistry faculty and students, many patients have not seen a nurse or physician in many years and have health problems. The practice offers comprehensive services, including immunizations and management of chronic conditions such as hypertension and diabetes. It is just one of the innovative projects that have resulted from the partnership between the Colleges of Nursing and Dentistry. For more information, visit nyu.edu/nursing/facprac.
