In brief: Yes

Your dental work will be carefully monitored by faculty dentists who are often leaders in their field.
Also, you will likely be seen by more than one dentist in the course of your treatment. The downside is that procedures take more time in a teaching institution. If you have more time than money, perfect.

In brief: Yes!

Dental schools can be a great place to go for care at a reduced fee.
It can take a long time as the students are closely supervised. And it's not free. The students' are motivated to provide the absolute best care they can.

In brief: Dental Clinics

The care at tufts univ school of dental medicine clinic is excellent.
The clinical instructors watch over every case closely and great care is given to every patient regardless of their ability to pay. A teaching clinic demands perfection as they are guiding our future dentists. I went to tufts and feel i received a great education. Help yourself and at the same time help a student.

i was clinical instructor in UCLA dental school and UNLV dental school, we were discussing all treatment options with our students and supervised each and every step of the treatment process. At my opinion it is safe to go to seek dental treatment in dental school affiliated clinic.
