Pediatric Resident and Student Clinics - Parnassus


UCSF’s Pediatric Dentistry Resident and Student Clinics offer both preventive care and treatment of dental conditions in children, performed by resident and student dentists.

Our student clinics are an integral part of the UCSF School of Dentistry’s mission: advancing health through excellence in patient care, education and discovery.

Patient Philosophy

The patient care providers in UCSF Dental Center are committed to excellence in the delivery of dental health care.

We strive to guarantee each patient a sensitive, informed and caring experience. Maintenance of high standards of technical and personal service not only ensures the best possible care for our patients, but also provides the best possible learning environment for the dental professionals who train at UCSF. We value the ethnic, cultural and social diversity of our patients.

We seek to recognize the individual and complex needs of patients and their families while guaranteeing that all are served promptly, courteously and with dignity. In working with the agencies that pay for care, we seek to reduce the financial barriers for those who wish to use our services.
