Special Patients

The Special Patients Clinic provides dental services to the developmentally disabled, elderly and infirm.

The clinic’s outstanding faculty dentists are trained to understand and address the particular needs of this chronically underserved segment of society.

Dental students and residents provide care under the supervision of our expert faculty dentists and hygienists.

Becoming a Patient

The first step in becoming a patient at the Special Patients Clinic is scheduling an initial consultation appointment. A referral from your dentist is NOT required.

All patients are required to present valid photo identification (California driver’s license, California identification card, passport or other government-issued photo identification).

Paying for Your Dental Care

The initial consultation appointment will cost $88, which includes the cost of X-rays.

We accept Denti-Cal insurance. Denti-Cal patients must bring their Beneficiary Identification Card (BIC). All other patients must pay with cash or credit card.
