Philadelphia — Penn Dental Medicine is giving students throughout the University of Pennsylvania something to smile about, announcing the introduction of discounted dental care fees for those students without dental insurance. The discounted fees are effective starting September 1.

“Oral health is an essential component of general health,” notes Penn Dental Medicine’s Morton Amsterdam Dean, Dr. Mark Wolff. “We are pleased to offer this resource to students across the University to ensure their continued good health.”

The discounted fee schedule for care within the School’s teaching clinics is available to all uninsured Penn undergraduate and graduate students. Routine preventive and restorative services are discounted 30% and all specialty services, including oral surgery, orthodontics, periodontics, endodontics, and prosthodontic are discounted 20% for self-pay students with a valid University ID. Payment plans are also available.

Care is provided within the School’s teaching clinics at 240 S. 40th Street. Regular hours (Monday-Wednesday, 8 a.m. – 8 p.m.; Thursday and Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m.) resume in September; summer hours (Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. – 4 p.m., excluding noon – 1 p.m., with evening hours Monday-Wednesday, 5-7:30 p.m.) are in affect during July and August.
