Before Coming to UAMS
If you have any symptoms of COVID-19, think you may have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, or have tested positive for COVID-19, call the UAMS appointment center at (501) 686-8000 to reschedule your appointment. You may also ask if your appointment can be done by phone or video.
Patients who have had a COVID-19 infection may have in-person appointments at UAMS 21 days after infection or a positive COVID test, as long as your symptoms are improving. Please call the clinic where your appointment is scheduled if you have any questions about coming for an in-person visit. You may be able to have an appointment by phone or video while you are waiting for clearance for an in-person visit.
What to Expect at Your Appointment
UAMS has safety measures in place to protect our patients and employees. Everyone who comes to UAMS is required to wear a mask and pass a health screening before entering the building. You will also have your temperature taken. Please wear a clean mask to your clinic visit, and do not remove it until asked to do so by a UAMS employee.
Outpatient Visitor Guidelines
Beginning March 3, 2021, one person may come to your appointment with you. You may also include a friend or family member in your appointment by phone or video chat.
If you need a wheelchair from your car to your appointment, transport staff may be available at the main UAMS campus. Contact your clinic for more information.
Please visit our COVID-19 resources to learn more about what to expect at your appointment.
About Dental Hygiene Student Clinic
The UAMS Dental Hygiene Student Clinic provides select dental hygiene services while providing clinical experience to dental hygiene students. Insurance is not filed in this clinic; all services are provided at a reduced rate and paid at the time of service by the patient.
Because these students are learning to provide good care and are observed by hygiene faculty at each step, you should be available to sit for an extended appointment time.
Services provided in this clinic include:
- Routine cleanings and examinations
- Radiographs (x-rays)
- Other preventative periodontal treatments
Appointments with the UAMS Dental Hygiene Student Clinic are scheduled for 8:00 am, 10:30 am, or 2:00 pm. This schedule allows our staff and students to properly care for each patient. Please keep this in mind when you schedule your appointment.
