Dental Clinic

Notice: The clinic is closed at this time.

Bates’ Dental Clinic provides a variety of dental services to the public. Our clinic is staffed with a full-time, licensed dentist, a Dental Assisting instructor, and students who are in their final three-and-a-half-month clinical internship.


We provide exams, fillings, crowns, and some extractions. All patients must have a complete new patient exam (exam and x-rays) before treatment can be performed.

The clinic cannot provide emergency treatment, root canals, orthodontics, third molar extractions, IV sedation or nitrous oxide. The dentist may choose to refer the patient to another dentist if he/she feels the treatment needed is beyond the scope of care we can provide in our clinic.
