Brian Secrist, DDS, director and treatment provider for UT Health San Antonio Dentistry’s newly opened General Dentistry Clinic.

UT Health San Antonio Dentistry’s newly opened General Dentistry Clinic is now scheduling appointments and welcoming patients. The clinic’s focus is to provide convenient, safe and personalized dental care for UT Health San Antonio employees, students, their families and the community.

“An important mission of our School of Dentistry is the provision of clinical care to the community. With the rapid population growth of San Antonio, including our campus and local community, I feel the time is right to expand our dental services to meet those increased demands. We are proud to be expanding our general dentistry services, with easy access to our expert dental specialists all within our clinic building at 8210 Floyd Curl Drive,” said Peter Loomer, DDS, PhD, dean of the School of Dentistry.

The new General Dentistry Clinic offers the services of a full-time, dedicated dentist and team to accommodate these increased needs in our community at an easy-to-access location on campus with convenient hours to fit employees’ work schedules. UT Dentistry is the largest and most technically advanced dental facility in the region, with the highest level of quality assurance processes in place throughout all practices and across all areas of patient care.

“The clinic serves as a launching pad for our new private practice dental care model that will operate separately but alongside our dental education practices. This new service gives us the opportunity to provide a dental care home to our UT Health San Antonio community,” said Gary Guest, DDS, associate dean for patient care in the School of Dentistry.

The clinic’s office hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. with extended patient care hours available for appointments before and after work as well as during lunch in order to accommodate UT Health employees’ work schedules.

Appointments are easy to make by phone during office hours or request online with same-day and next-day appointments often available. The General Dentistry Clinic is an in-network preferred provider for UT System’s Delta Dental insurance and offers all routine preventative and comprehensive dental care as well as restorative and cosmetic dentistry for all ages.
