Patient Responsibilities

The students have set schedules for patient care (see above). Since their goal is quality care within a teaching and learning environment, patient cooperation is essential. Everyone's time is valuable. Individuals with compromised medical histories maybe referred to a physician for medical clearance before receiving dental hygiene care.


It is the responsibility of the patient to comply with UAFS parking rules and regulations. Patient parking is only permitted in the gated area. If you have a handicap permit, you may park in the handicap space provided in front of the building. Parking citations are the responsibility of the patient.
