PREVENTION STEPS FOR THOSE WHO ARE SICK AND/OR AT RISK OF COVID-19
Marquette University School of Dentistry is committed to protecting the health, safety, and well-being of our students, faculty, staff, and visitors. We are carefully monitoring the developments related to the Coronavirus outbreak. At present, there are still no confirmed cases of COVID-19 at Marquette.
Nevertheless, COVID-19 is a highly contagious virus and the danger it can pose to vulnerable populations demands that we take precautions to protect all members of our Marquette community. After careful consideration we have decided to take the following steps:
Our patient clinics will be closed until further notice.
Our current patients with a dental emergency can call (414) 288-7388 for additional information. The Emergency Clinic will be open Monday - Friday from 9:00 am until noon. After hours protocol will be in place during the time the clinic is closed.
There will NOT be walk-in emergency services available for the community until further notice.
We have a dedicated team working through these complex issues to identify the best courses of action in the coming days and weeks.

Hodgson, DDS from Pediatric Dentistry at the School of Dentistry and a retired Captain in the US Navy administered the Oath of Office to Captains Alex Padalino and Cole Brennan, both graduating students at the School of Dentistry. The ceremony was part of the completion of their Health Professions Scholarship Program through the US Air Force.

Marquette University School of Dentistry hygienists provide free care to elementary students
Hygienists from the School of Dentistry visited Rocketship Southside Community Prep to provide free dental cleanings and check-ups to hundreds of elementary students. Principal Madeline Hawkins said for many families, access to dental care is not something readily available or affordable even with insurance. “We know that dental hygiene is incredibly important,” Hawkins added. “If a student comes to school with a sore tooth or something, that has a huge impact on their ability to learn.” Stories appeared in WTMJ-TV (NBC 4), Spectrum News, March 9-10, 2020.
