Comprehensive Care Clinics

Becoming a patient

Appointments can be made by phone at 216.368.8730 or in person at the School of Dental Medicine in the ground floor main clinic reception area. There is a non-refundable fee of approximately $90.00, which includes X-rays and an exam, to initiate a patient record and to admit an individual as a patient of the school. We do not accept personal checks on the first visit, so patients can pay by cash, MasterCard, Visa, or a Debit Card bearing the MasterCard or Visa logo.


The Dental School DMD Clinic is located in the CWRU School of Dental Medicine's Dental Clinic Building, which is located on Chester Avenue, between East 93rd and East 97th Streets. Parking is available in the lot behind the building, which has entrances on both East 93rd and East 97th. The University provides directions to campus if you're coming from a distance. Alternatively, you can enter your address to get directions from Google Maps.

The clinics are open from 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, with a lunch break from 12:00 – 1:00 p.m.
