We offer specialty services not found at most small private practices or other medical centers in the region, including:

  • Facial pain and temporomandibular (TMJ) disorders clinic
  • Restorative care and rehabilitation for patients with head and neck cancer tumors
  • Clinic for high-risk patients, such as those with bleeding disorders, compromised immunity systems or mental illness

Caring For Children

Your child’s doctor may refer you to the Kluge Children's Rehabilitation Center (KCRC) for treatment.

Many of our patients have diagnoses of autism, cerebral palsy or developmental and behavioral disorders and may not be able to be treated in a regular dentist’s office. 

Our dental faculty and registered dental hygienists perform dental services, which include:

Preventive and hygiene services

Restorative care

Prosthetic and adaptive appliances

Minor orthodontics

Consultation and referral for complex oral surgery, comprehensive orthodontics and treatment under general anesthesia

KCRC is also a training site for the UVA General Practice Dental Residency. Residents learn patient management skills and procedures that help them care for children with disabilities in their dental practices.
