Dental Services

No referral is needed for services offered by the outpatient clinic of the College of Dentistry. 

Students may call and make appointments directly with the College of Dentistry at (202) 806-0034. Speak with the Dental Staff to discuss any costs associated with the service you are requesting. The insurance plan covers preventive, diagnostic, basic restorative, and major replacement, subject to fees on file at the Howard University College of Dentistry and with United HealthCare Services.


ALL PATIENTS, except emergencies, must make an appointment. The first appointment will be for evaluation to determine the patient’s dental needs. Preliminary diagnostic radiographs are taken and your record is forwarded to the patient pool for assignment to a student. Assignment is determined by your dental needs and how those needs will assist the student in obtaining his/her clinical experiences.

Howard University students seeking treatment in the College of Dentistry must have a current Howard University identification card. If you are already registered as a patient in the dental clinics you must be able to present a valid current registration. For more information about dental services, visit the patient care webpage.
