Any child or adult who is currently a Medicaid recipient is eligible for SIU Community Dental Center services, but a co-pay may be required. Children and adults who are not covered by Medicaid may also receive services at discounted rates. We accept cash/credit card payments only.

Services provided for children include cleanings, x-rays, dental exams, school exams, sealants, and topical fluoride treatments. Restorative treatment, such as fillings, may also be performed if needed. Services provided for adults include x-rays, dental exams, and restorative work, such as fillings. In some cases, we are able to provide root canals and crowns as well. Dental cleanings for adults are referred to the SIU Dental Hygiene clinic.

The patients at SIU Community Dental receive care from fourth-year SIU dental hygiene students, dentists and supervising dental hygienist.

Patients are seen by appointment only. Fall 2017 clinic hours are Tuesdays/Thursdays 8am-7:30pm and Friday 8am-12pm.  Appointments may be made by calling 618-453-2353. You can also contact us at
