Patient Responsibilities

The dental hygiene students have established schedules when they are available to give patient care. Since the goal is quality dental hygiene care within a teaching/learning environment, patient cooperation is essential.

Patients should understand that this is an educational setting and that the student’s learning experience and progress depend on the patient’s full cooperation. Everyone’s time is valuable. If for some reason a patient is unable to keep an appointment, advance notice of 24 hours is appreciated, to allow the student to arrange to treat other patients.

Upon arriving at your appointment, you will be asked to present a photo ID with the current address or UB Student ID. Your ID will be scanned and maintained in our electronic records for patient identification.
