Quality Care

We look forward to providing you with educational, preventative and therapeutic dental hygiene services. Our services are available to all adults and children age three and older. Due to the educational nature of the clinic, your treatment will progress at a slower pace than in a dental office. You can be assured that the instructor and student interaction, that requires more time during your appointments, also means that your care will meet the highest standards of quality. Thank you for participating in a program that benefits both you as a patient and the dental hygiene students who will become your future dental hygiene professionals.

Dental hygiene students perform all services under the supervision of licensed dental health professionals. Our services are limited to preventative and limited basic restorative services. We do not offer crowns, extractions, etc., nor do we treat dental emergencies.

Our services are not intended to replace comprehensive dental care provided by your dentist.
