The dental hygiene clinic in Lamb Hall on campus is open to the public with clinic hours scheduled to coincide with each academic semester. Initial appointments provide the patient with a thorough patient assessment (check-up) after which the patient will be assigned to a student for cleaning at a later time. Services include:
- Thorough Examination
- Oral Cancer Screening
- Dental Cleaning
- Dental Charting
- Periodontal Assessment and Therapy
- Preventive Oral Health Instructions
- Occlusal Sealants
- Dental Radiographs
Senior Citizens (55 and older) receive free treatment (there is a charge to copy x-rays
to be sent to your dentist). All others (who can afford to pay) are charged $20.00
for cleaning. The cost for sealants is $12.00 each and the costs for reproducing x-rays
are as follows: $30.00 for full mouth, $20.00 for bite wings or panoramic, and $5.00
for single periapical x-rays. All exams are free and there is only a charge for x-rays
when they must be reproduced. Current fees are subject to change. For information
regarding blood borne pathogens and infection control please refer to clinical education
and our clinic manual pages 4 through 19. Our students are taught to follow stringent
infection control policies.
Please remember that we are a teaching facility and you will receive excellent care but it may not done as quickly as in a private dental office. Our students need time to learn and to have their work evaluated. Thank you for your patience. Also, please be advised that our services do not replace routine visits to your dentist.
Please phone (423) 439-4514 for an appointment. We are located in room 70 just off
the breeze way (which is a walkway through the building) in Lamb Hall which is number
19 on the campus map or you can locate the building by choosing Main Campus and Lamb Hall.
