Clinical Services

The Department of Clinical Services is one of four departments within the School of Dentistry. The Department of Clinical Services works with the other three departments to assure the clinics operate efficiently and safely in educating our students and delivering high quality patient care. Specifically, the department treats patients experiencing acute dental pain and other dental emergencies. The department targets populations not having access to regular dental care in the Milwaukee area and around the State of Wisconsin and care provided is regularly assessed.
