The dental clinic in the Nobel Biocare Oral Health Centre is open during the academic year from the end of August until the end of June, although our programs have staggered finish dates.
We are closed during the Christmas Break, generally from the second week in December to the first working day after New Year's. We operate an emergency clinic for UBC patients during the Christmas Break and also during the summer hiatus.
There are some graduate programs that offer service throughout the calendar year.
The UBC Dental clinic operates at reduced fees. Our fees are approximately 20 to 40% less than those in the BC Dental Association Fee Guide. It is important to note that there are both Student and Graduate Program UBC fee guides. Depending on whether a student dentist/dental hygienist or a graduate resident performs the treatment, the appropriate fees will apply.
Patients with dental insurance are responsible for paying their accounts to the clinic directly and later will be reimbursed by their dental plan, except for those patients with Blue Cross Insurance coverage. Patients who qualify for government assistance should obtain the necessary authorization of eligibility before treatment begins. The clinic will collect from the government agency directly.
The Nobel Biocare Oral Health Centre at UBC uses state-of-the-art technology and an innovative architectural design to create a sophisticated, efficient space for learning, community service and research. The dental clinic in the Oral Health Centre provides the setting for the clinical practice component that is required for the completion of Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD), Dental Hygiene (RDH) and graduate programs. The scope and extent of treatment provided must conform to the parameters delineated by the Commission on Dental Accreditation of Canada through their Accreditation process.
