New Heights hosts a Student Clinic one Saturday a month, during most months of the School Year. This is an opportunity for students and residents to help needy patients, get additional experience, and provide dentistry in an encouraging environment. We provide extractions, fillings, and simple root canals for those who have an urgent need.
The students provide the care and assist each other, with supervision by the Dental Director or another dentist who has faculty status with the OHSU School of Dentistry. A lunch and discussion time are provided after patient care is completed, for those who can stay.
Up to five students come to each clinic, with at least two from the third or fourth year class. The Clinic environment encourages appropriate and compassionate dental and spiritual care.
Contact the Dental Director, Dr Bob Bruechert to get on the email notification list or to get more information.
