The University campus has a dental treatment room in the West Pod of the Emergency Department with digital intra oral radiographic capability.

Members of the Division provide professional supervision for the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile preventive dental services, which include sealants, dental cleaning, fluoride treatments and screenings with referrals as needed. The program was launched in the summer of 2000 as the first of its kind in the nation.
