Policy for Failed and Cancelled Appointments
Failed appointments will be documented in the patient’s record.
Failing more than one appointment will disallow a patient from making another. In this instance, those patients will be placed on a short notice cancellation list.
If the patient subsequently attends two consecutive scheduled appointments without failing, normal scheduling procedures will be permitted.
Short notice cancellations will be documented in the patient’s chart. If a patient cancels two appointments, within a short time span, this will disallow a patient from making another. In this instance, those patients will be placed on a short notice cancellation list.
If the patient subsequently attends two consecutive appointments without canceling, normal scheduling procedures will then be permitted.

The Maine Bureau of Veterans’ Services (MBVS) and eight participating clinics, including the UMA Dental Hygiene Clinic in Bangor, will provide dental hygiene services to veterans unable to afford preventive dental care. The Maine Veterans’ Dental Network, which is overseen by MBVS, received a $35,000 grant from Northeast Delta Dental to serve veterans who do not otherwise have dental coverage or cannot afford dental care.
The UMA Dental Hygiene Clinic received $4,000 of this grant funding to provide preventive dental hygiene services (e.g. cleanings) for qualifying veterans.
To receive dental hygiene services, veterans must provide a copy of their DD-214 (discharge papers) to the clinic and grant permission to forward the document to MBVS for inclusion in its database. If the veteran does not have a copy of their DD-214, MBVS can assist them in acquiring one by submitting the State of Maine Request Form located on the MBVS website.
To make an appointment, eligible veterans may contact the UMA Dental Hygiene Clinic at 207.262.7872 to schedule a free dental cleaning, including X-rays and fluoride treatment.
Give Kids A Smile®
The American Dental Association reports that over 4 million children have received care through Give Kids a Smile® Programs.
In 2020, the UMA Bangor Dental Health Program’s event provided free dental services to approximately 61 children; the value of the donated services totaled approximately $16,900! In summary, all children were seen by a Maine licensed dentist for an exam and our UMA students provided all the other preventive dental services including over 40 prophylaxis cleanings, placed 27 dental sealants and took 32 sets of X-Rays.
Our next Give Kids a Smile® event is scheduled to take place on Friday, February 19, 2021. Don’t miss it!
