What to expect

In many ways, we function just like a normal dental office, and you can expect to receive excellent dental care. However, we are a teaching facility, so dentists-in-training work with experienced dentists to provide your care. This means that our patients receive an exceptionally high level of care, but it takes longer than a normal private practice. As a dental school, there are other benefits: 

  • Our rates are lower than area private practices. We strive to keep our prices affordable — usually 25 to 50 percent lower than area dental offices, and sometimes more. You will receive high-quality care at a lower price, while helping advance dentistry!
  • Comprehensive care. We have several specialized dental clinics all in the same building, ready to meet all of your oral health needs. 
  • Convenient location. Our clinic is located in downtown Boston, a short walk from South Station, Downtown Crossing, Park Street, and Tufts Medical Center MBTA stations. We also offer discounted parking and evening hours. Get directions.
