UAB School of Dentistry welcomes first-time patients who are coming for either emergency or routine treatment. You will be seen by a student doctor supervised by a faculty member. An exam and X-rays are usually taken on the first appointment and this is the time to discuss your dental needs and concerns. By the end of the second appointment, most patients will have a treatment plan and be ready to start treatment. Call (205) 934-3000 for more information.
