Why Go to a Faculty Dental Practice?

Enjoy Care From Faculty at One of the World’s Best Dental Schools

If you’ve been searching for a new dental provider, you may be wondering how a practice can guarantee you’ll receive the best quality of care. One strategy is to seek services at a faculty dental practice, where you know that the quality of care is backed by a reputable educational institution. A faculty dental practice is a venue for faculty members of a dental school to provide services in a private dental office setting. At Penn Dental Family Practice, we operate alongside of the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine while remaining affiliated with it.

There are many reasons why patients choose to receive care at our practice. Ultimately, these reasons go back to the basic concern of credibility and quality of care. Going to a faculty dental practice (especially when it is associated with a highly reputable institution) provides a measure of certainty about the excellence of care being offered. Here are five reasons why our patients prefer this dental care option:

  • Expertise
    Penn Dental Family Practice features dentists who serve at the University of Pennsylvania Hospital and Dental School, as well as the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. Our dental faculty are highly trained and qualified within their fields. As they teach the next generation of dentists at the prestigious University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine, they must stay up to date about advancements within the field, so they can transmit relevant knowledge to their students.
  • Experience
    At a faculty dental practice, you will receive care from highly experienced providers. Our faculty are at the forefront of their various specialties. Read more about our team to see that most of our dentists have specialized certifications, awards, and many years of experience in their field.
