LSUSD Patient Information Handbook

The LSUHSC School of Dentistry has three separate clinical programs, dental student, advanced education, and faculty dental practice, that offer a full range of dental services and procedures. In addition to routine dental procedures, patients have access to specialists in endodontics, oral pathology, orthodontics, oral surgery, periodontics, pediatric dentistry, and prosthodontics.

Patient Centered Care:

It is the policy of the School to provide care in a patient-centered manner. Patient-centered care is defined as ensuring the patient is a key member of the care delivery process. The School will take into account the individual patient's needs, preferences, values and goals, and this will guide the treatment planning process. At no time will the best interest of the patient be compromised in order to provide a necessary experience for a student. The supervising faculty is responsible to ensure that the patient has had their options explained to them. The School will not perform any service requested by a patient which would not meet the profession's standard of care.
