The treatment is provided at our student clinics and is performed by students under the supervision of experienced tutors. Patients who are suitable for student training are registered and then offered appointments for treatment. 

First-time patients

The staff at the reception desk (Mottaksstasjonen) register and manage the admission of adult patients. First-time patients will be examined to assess whether or not their medical case is appropriate for our teaching programme. You will be asked about your medical circumstances and will undergo x-ray and clinical examinations. A preliminary treatment plan and cost estimate will be prepared. We reserve the right to select patients who are considered to be appropriate for teaching purposes. The following circumstances are not appropriate for such a purpose

  • Extensive and complicated dental work
  • Poor Norwegian language skills
  • Limited ability to attend treatment sessions

About the treatment

Dental treatment is always time-consuming. You must be prepared to attend treatments on repeated occasions and to have to sit and wait before each treatment session, normally for several hours. You must attend sessions at times when the students are available

Waiting lists

The waiting lists for treatments are often long, and sometimes you will need to have parts of the treatment performed by a private practice dentist. As long as you are registered on the waiting list you may receive emergency assistance by contacting the reception desk.

Consent to treatment

We reserve the right to use patients’ national identity number (11 digits) for accurate identification of patient records. The Faculty reserves the right to use all information and material gathered for research purposes.
