Advanced Dental Therapy program seeks volunteer patients

The Metropolitan State University Advanced Dental Therapy students are seeking patients to volunteer in the upcoming Central Regional Dental Board Exam on Oct. 16, 2016. Volunteers will be compensated for helping and the work done during the board examination will be free.

In order to volunteer one must:

  • be 18 years of age.
  • have a current dental exam and X-rays done by the participating Advanced Dental Therapy student (at the cost of $35), which can be done at the Metropolitan State University Dental Clinic located in Maplewood.
  • have the ability to travel to the exam site at the University of Minnesota for the event, which runs from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.
  • meet the Dental Board Exam requirements.

Those who do not qualify as a patient for the Dental Board Exam will receive a 20 percent discount on dental treatment received at the Metropolitan State University Dental Clinic.

In order to participate, schedule an appointment to have your dental exam and X-rays done, or if you have any questions, please e-mail
