Dr. Jeanette Courtad, Dentist

 

Overview
The Dental Clinic at the Coulter Student Health Center emphasizes patient  education to prevent disease and provides treatment options when procedures are needed. Dental treatment is provided in the same non-threatening, responsive, and considerate manner that students have come to expect of all health care services at the Coulter Student Health Center.

The dental clinic is staffed by a dentist, a dental assistant, and a dental hygienist and provides basic dental services such as exams, cleaning, x-rays, simple restorations and education regarding good dental hygiene. Dental services are provided on a fee-for-services basis and are available to all students who have paid the Health Center Fee.  The Dental Clinic is NOT available to spouses, even if they have paid the Health Center Fee. The Health Center can take cash or check only, and fees are due at time of service - the Health Center does not bill. Students enrolled in CSM's Student Health Insurance Plan will receive dental care for reduced fees.*

The clinic is available by appointment only.  If you would like an appointment, please call 303.273.3377 to request one.  If you feel you are having a dental emergency (experiencing pain or sensitivity), please let the person on the phone know at the time you are setting up the appointment. 


Eligibility and Fees
All Mines students who have paid the Health Services Fee are eligible for services at the Dental Clinic.  In most cases, treatment will require a co-payment.  Students enrolled in the SHIP  will receive priority in scheduling appointments and will pay less for dental care than students not participating in the SHIP.*  Students may only be seen during the session in which they are enrolled and paying fees.

Routine  Appointment Hours of Service**

Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday 8:00 am - 12 noon, 1:15 pm - 4:45 pm

*Discount provided by Mines’ Dental Clinic.

**Students will be charged for missed appointments if they do not call to cancel by 8 am the day before the scheduled appointment.

Hours of dental service may be reduced during semester breaks and summer sessions.
