2020 COMMENCEMENT UPDATE


COVID-19 alert

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.

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.

Our Graduate Specialty clinics opened on June 15th and our Pre-doctoral clinics opened on July 13th.

From July 20th onwards, normal hours will be resumed at the Emergency Clinic and the clinic will be open Monday - Friday (8:30 AM - 12:30 PM AND 1:00 PM - 4:30 PM).

Our current patients with a dental emergency can call (414) 288-7388 for additional information.

After hours protocol will be in place during the time the Emergency Clinic is closed. When the after-hours protocol is in place patients can call (262) 521-4997.

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 course of action in the coming days and weeks.

PREVENTION STEPS FOR THOSE WHO ARE SICK AND/OR AT RISK OF COVID-19

  • 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.
