How to Refer Patients


LSU School of Dentistry: Referral by dentist or physician only: 

Appointments in the dental school clinic are made by referral from dentist or physician. Doctors may fax a referral letter to OMS, indicating the patient's name, contact number, and the specific reason for the referral.  The patient will receive a call from the OMS scheduling clerk within 3-4 weeks. Doctors should call 504-941-8408 or fax to 504-941-8164 to refer a patient.


OMS is not accepting single tooth extractions; these should be referred to Interim Louisiana Hospital (University Hospital).


Interim Louisiana Hospital: Self-referral Clinic:

Physicians, please refer via Epic. Patients may schedule appointments by calling 504-903-3083 between 8 am and 4 pm.  Dentists or physicians can fax referrals to 504-903-3705. Appointments are required
