Dental Medicine & Surgery

The Dental Medicine and Surgery program at Stanford Medicine is dedicated to quality patient care and individualized treatment. Our clinic offers hospital dentistry and targets concerns such as facial trauma, oral pathology, oral infection, oral oncology, orofacial pain and dental clearance prior to major medical treatment. We provide surgical dental clearance and extractions for patients with multiple medical comorbidities such as organ transplant and cancer.

At this time, we are unable to offer comprehensive dental treatment including routine dental cleanings, restorations including crowns and removable dental prostheses.
