Directions to the Faculty Dental Clinic

Patient Parking

Parking is provided in the Washington Avenue Parking Ramp, next to The Commons Hotel. This ramp is located directly across the street from Moos Tower. Patients of the School of Dentistry receive a reduced parking rate with a validated parking ticket. Bring your ticket to any of the reception desks on floors 6-9 for validation. Please bring a copy of the text or email of your appointment confirmation to the parking ramp.

The parking ramp sign may say "Full, reservations only." Your appointment in the School of Dentistry is considered a reservation. If the ramp is full, inform the attendant that you have a dental appointment to obtain entrance. 

There is also metered parking on the street.

Additional safety measures have been put in place to limit exposure and potential spread of the COVID-19 virus.  Protective equipment has been installed throughout the clinics and waiting areas, and additional personal protective wear is worn by staff and students. 

Patient check-in now includes:

  • Additional security checks in Moos Tower. Please bring a copy of your identification (driver’s license or other photo ID), and a confirmation of your appointment (a copy of your appointment reminder text, email or postcard confirmation). We can confirm your appointment on-site if you aren’t able to provide a copy.

  • If you come in on the second floor through the tunnel from the Washington Avenue Parking Ramp, please proceed to the third floor check-in.

  • Our scheduling staff will ask you screening questions prior to your appointment. You will be asked to answer those same questions again when you arrive for check in, and again once in the treatment room. This is mandated by the Minnesota Board of Dentistry.

  • Your temperature will be checked upon entering the building. Anyone with a temperature over 100.4 degrees will have their appointment rescheduled and will be referred to their physician for COVID-19 testing.

  • Please bring a photo ID and insurance card to the appointment.  

For the safety of all:

  • We ask that only the patient attend the appointment. Exceptions include parents/guardians accompanying children and people providing mobility support.  Any additional visitors will either be asked to exit the building or the appointment will be rescheduled.

  • If you or anyone in your household has a fever and/or respiratory symptoms, or if you or anyone you have been in contact with has tested positive for COVID-19, we ask that you call and reschedule your appointment.
