COMPREHENSIVE DENTISTRY

Senior Care Clinic

The Senior Care Clinic provides outpatient general dentistry treatment to the growing elder population. Treatment is provided by faculty with specialized training in Geriatrics or by undergraduate students under faculty supervision. Many elderly screening patients, not suitable for undergraduate student care in the general group practice clinics, might be referred to the Senior Care Clinic. We also take self referrals, as well as referrals from the clients’ family members or their other health care providers.

The staff of the Senior Care clinic works hard to accommodate our patients with special medical, mental, and functional needs. We have a larger treatment room equipped with a wheelchair lift for those who can not transfer. Appointment times are adequate in length to provide quality care without the clients feeling "rushed".

The Senior Care Clinic is located on the 2nd floor of the UT Health Science Center Dental School at 7703 Floyd Curl Drive, San Antonio, TX 78229. Dr. Tam Van is the Director and appointments can be made by calling (210) 567-0327.
