Dental SHAC does not admit patients as First Come First Serve, but rather by lottery. ALL patients must be present by 6:00 PM. No additional patients will be seated after 8:00PM.

Services: Dental SHAC is a free, student-run clinic. We do its best to serve everyone that comes to the clinic. But due to the time it takes to provide good care, it is possible that some patients will not be seen. Screening, cleanings, fillings and extractions are the typical procedures done.

For complete, comprehensive care, apply to be a patient at the dental school via the UNC School of Dentistry site: http://www.dentistry.unc.edu/patient/

If you are in Severe Pain, have Bleeding, or have Swelling: Call the UNC Dental School Urgent Care department at (919) 537-3737 between 8:00am and 5:00pm. The visit has a modest fee, and they can address your problem.

Dental SHAC es una organización dirigida por estudiantes que provee servicios dentales gratuitos a comunidades e individuos de pocos recursos; acompañar a las comunidades para desarrollar e implementar programas sostenibles; y crear un ambiente interdisciplinario de servicio y aprendizaje para los estudiantes en los programas de salud y ciencias en la universidad de Carolina del Norte en Chapel Hill.

Dental SHAC funciona con un sistema de lotería. Cada paciente escoge un número, unos números serán  escogidos al azar, y los pacientes que tienen los números escogidos recibirán tratamiento. Sin embargo, tratamos de evaluar todos los pacientes ingresados. Recomendamos que lleguen temprano (10-15 minutos antes) para entrar  a la clínica. No permitimos la entrada de pacientes que lleguen después de las 6.

Si requiere cuidado urgente, por favor llame a la Clínica de Urgencias de la Escuela de Odontología de UNC, (919) 537-3737 entre 8AM-5PM. La visita tiene un costo moderado, y ellos pueden abordar su problema.
