The University of Southern Nevada College of Dental Medicine is now recruiting children, adolescents and adults to participate as patients for its orthodontic residency program.
The college is offering a free screening and consultation, which includes an examination to qualify candidates for orthodontic treatment (braces). Qualified patients will be scheduled for diagnostic records and begin orthodontic treatment. Following the start of treatment, routine appointments will typically be scheduled every four to six weeks at the college’s clinic located at 4 Sunset Way, Building C, in Henderson.
According to Dr. C. Lynn Hurst, dean of the College of Dental Medicine, patients will receive affordable, high-quality orthodontic treatment from a team that includes both a resident doctor (fully licensed by the Nevada State Board of Dental Examiners) and board-certified orthodontic faculty.
“In receiving treatment at the USN College of Dental Medicine, patients will have the benefit of a highly skilled team offering the latest technology and practices used to correct orthodontic and dentofacial orthopedic discrepancies (crooked teeth and jaws),” Hurst said. “They’ll also receive treatment at a very affordable cost.”
Typically braces can cost $6,000 or more, but the college will offer braces, as well as other orthodontic treatments, to patients for half of those fees. The college also accepts most dental insurance plans, including Medicaid, as well as affordable payment plans.
