The health and well-being of our entire population — faculty, staff, students and especially patients — is incredibly important to us. Due to the national emergency regarding the 2019 novel coronavirus, which is responsible for COVID-19, we would like to share with our our constituencies the following:

FOR PATIENTS

 

Patients: After a brief new-patient hiatus, we are once again accepting new patients. However, due to a backlog of patients whose treatment needs to be completed, there may be a delay before you are assigned to a student. Patients must be screen for COVID signs/sympotms prior to dental appointments. Patients will be screened at the front entryway and must wear a surgical/medical-grade mask upon entering the dental school.

Dental-Emergency Patients: We are currently accepting patients for emergency treatment by appointment only. No walk-ins will be accepted. If you are experiencing dental pain and believe you’re experiencing a dental emergency, please call (213) 740-2805.

UPON RETURNING TO OUR PATIENT CARE FACILITIES, patients are expected to follow new safety protocols to ensure the safety of our entire community. Learn more below:

FOR FACULTY, STAFF AND STUDENTS

 

Faculty and Staff: Surgical masks must be worn at all times by all who enter the building — employees, students and patients/visitors because the dental school is a healthcare facility. If you are fully vaccinated and have uploaded proof of vaccination into your MySHR portal, you do not need to maintain a weekly COVID-19 testing regimen. Those who are not fully vaccinated must still be tested weekly for COVID-19.

Faculty and Staff: Most library buildings, including the Wilson Dental Library are open for study and research. Visit the Fall 2021 at the USC Libraries page for more information.
