Students with Patient

Appointments

In order to best serve you as well as the student hygienists, we request that you follow a few guidelines regarding your appointment time.

  • Please be punctual. If you are running late, call to let us know your estimated arrival time.
  • If you can only attend a portion of your appointment, please let the student hygienist know.
  • If you need to change or cancel your appointment, please let us know 24 hours in advance.
  • Student hygienists are individually graded on their clinical skills. A zero grade will be assigned for each clinic session that a patient fails to attend.

Children's Care

Our students smile when they are able to be a part of your child's very first dental visit. We welcome children of all ages. We provide a fun visit to the dental clinic for your child that will be remembered. This can help eliminate fears of dental care that can start at an early age.
