Dental Hygiene Clinic

JCCC Dental Hygiene students provide services under the supervision of dentists and registered dental hygienists.


Only preventive treatment is provided. No restorative or emergency treatment is available. For a complete diagnosis of treatment needs, you must see your own dentist. At your request, we will send diagnostic X-rays to your dentist. To make a request, please complete the form below.

  • Oral examination

  • Fluoride treatment
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Other selected services (sealants)

Making an Appointment, Cost

The clinic provides services to JCCC students, faculty, community members and children beginning at the age of 4. If you have a special dental or medical condition (such as heart disease, hepatitis, high blood pressure or diabetes) we may need a written statement from your physician prior to treating you. The cost for services is $10 (cash, check or debit card) which covers all services and is due at the first appointment.

One of our staff dentists can sign school-age children’s dental cards if they do not need additional treatment. Most children are seen in the clinic during the spring semester.

Records Request

If you have been to the Dental Hygiene Clinic and would like us to send your most recent X-rays via electronic transmission in a non-encrypted format to a dentist or other service provider, complete the Dental Hygiene Clinic Records Request Form.

Appointments

To request an appointment, please complete the JCCC Dental Hygiene Clinic Appointment Request Form or contact the clinic at 913-469-3808. Requests are taken at the beginning of the fall and spring semesters. The clinic is NOT open in the summer.

Once completed, your name will be placed on a list for patient appointments. Students are responsible for appointing their own patients according to their own schedule and requirements. Therefore, appointments are not guaranteed. If you are appointed, these times are limited and valuable. Please make every effort to keep your appointment date and time. If you must cancel, please give your student 24 hours’ notice. Otherwise, you may not be eligible for future appointments.

Commitment to Our Dental Hygiene Patients

  • We will assess, diagnose and explain all findings to you as well as the dental hygiene treatment recommended, expected outcome and cost savings at this clinic. We strive to answer any questions you have about your oral health and treatment.
  • We respect your right to privacy in healthcare. Your dental hygiene records are confidential and will only be released upon your permission/consent.
  • We will provide you with considerate and respectful care that is comprehensive for your dental hygiene needs.
  • If you refuse treatment, an explanation of the risks associated with that choice will be reviewed with you.

Expectation of Our Dental Hygiene Patients

  • Your treatment may take several appointments. If it does, you will be informed at your first appointment of the approximate amount of time needed.
  • Because students must complete patients for credit, we must ask that you to commit to the time frame you are given.
  • Arrive on time and respect faculty, students and staff while at the JCCC Dental Hygiene Clinic.
  • Give your student hygienist twenty-four (24) hours’ notice when you must cancel a scheduled appointment.
  • If you break your patient care commitment more than once, this could affect your ability to be a patient in the clinic.
