Dental Community Resources
Access to the PSU Dental Service is included in the health fee that is automatically assessed to students taking 5 or more credits. It is also available to students who are part-time and have paid the Student Health Fee. For those students that do not have access to the PSU Dental Services, below are various places within the community that offer dental services. Some clinics offer low cost or sliding scale services.
The Emergency Tooth Doctor, open 7 days a week, provides everything from preventative care to your emergency needs. They do not charge a premium because they are an emergency clinic. However, they are still a full service general practice. The clinic accepts payment in cash, check, Visa or MasterCard, and most Major Commercial Insurance. For those that do not have dental insurance, ask about their 0% interest Easy Pay payment plan.
