Directions and Parking

Free Parking

We provide free parking for the time you spend at your appointment with Dental Faculty Practice. Bring your parking entry ticket with you to your appointment. We will place a sticker on your ticket that allows you to exit the garage for free.

The 12th Avenue Garage (340 W. 12th Ave., 43210) is nearest to our clinic. The garage is located on the south side of Herrick Dr. and is connected to the Medical Center with a walkway bridge on the 3rd floor. The Dental Clinic entrance will be on your left after you enter the building from the walkway. Take the elevator to the 4th floor to reach Dental Faculty Practice.

If the 12th Avenue Garage is full, please use the North Cannon Garage, which is located just up the street to the west.
