At DYPDS, patients receiving routine care are treated by dentists working under the supervision and responsibility of experienced dentist-lecturers. In the educational arena, all areas of dentistry are represented.
The majority of current treatments are carried out in the context of
education, such as:
plaque removal, treatment and prevention of caries (cavities), ROOTCANNAL, SURGICAL EXTRACTIONS,
making crowns, bridges and dentures.
The treatment is similar to that provided in any other dental practice, with the exception that treatment is in the context of education.
All patients at DYPDS are assigned a “patient owner”. While you may be treated by several different students/DENTIST, a single dentist-lecturer is responsible for your dental care plan. If you any have questions or comments about your overall care plan, you can put these to the “patient owner”. Following your initial consultation, you will be assigned to this dentist-lecturer.
When registering, each patient will receive an DYPDS patient card, bearing
contact information. Details of future appointments will be entered on the
inside of your card. A sticker bearing your patient number is attached to the
back of this card. Keep details of this number handy when contacting DYPDS
