To meet the wide variety of patients’ needs, Tufts University School of Dental Medicine has general, specialty and emergency clinics, as well as Tufts Dental Associates (a full-service faculty practice) and Tufts Craniofacial Pain Center.
Patient Care at Tufts Dental School
Our clinics offer a full range of high quality general, specialty, and emergency dental care at lower fees than private practices. At the clinics, dental care is especially affordable because faculty-supervised pre-doctoral dental students or post-doctoral dental residents provide treatment. Some of the most common clinics include:
- Diagnosis and Heath Promotion – Basic services including cleanings and evaluations
- Orthodontics – Braces for adults and children
- Pediatrics – Serving patients ages 6 months to 18 years
- Specialty Clinics – Root Canals, esthetics, bridges, oral surgery, special needs, etc.
- Emergency Care – For treatment of acute pain, swelling, and urgent dental needs

Tufts Dental Associates (TDA) is the faculty practice at Tufts Dental School. General and specialty dental care is provided by the school’s faculty–many of whom are internationally recognized in their area of expertise. Tufts Dental Associates is a multi-specialty private group practice, uses no student dentists and has rates comparable to other private dental practices in the Greater Boston Area.
