Dental Hygiene Clinic

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


Our students provide only preventive treatment. For a complete diagnosis on treatment needs, you must see your family dentist. If you do not have a family dentist, you may select one from our list of community dentists. At your request we will send diagnostic X-rays to your dentist. To make that request, please complete the form below.

Services

  • Blood pressure screening
  • Oral examination
  • X-rays (only as needed)
  • Teeth scaled and polished
  • Fluoride treatment
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Oral hygiene instruction
  • Other selected services, including sealants
Please note: Emergency services are NOT available.

Who We Treat

The clinic serves JCCC students, faculty, community members and their children. If you have a special dental or medical condition (such as heart disease, hepatitis, high blood pressure), we may need a written statement from your physician before we can treat you.

We begin treating children at age 4. If you have school-age children, one of our staff dentists can sign their dental cards if they do not need additional treatment. The majority of children are seen in the clinic during the spring semester.

Cost

The charge is $10 (cash or check), which covers all services.

Records Request

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

Appointments

We start taking names at the beginning of the fall and spring semester. The clinic is not open during the summer.

The first visit usually takes three and a half hours. Appointments are time consuming because students are being supervised and evaluated by faculty. It is often necessary to schedule additional appointments to complete your treatment.

Appointments are limited and valuable, so please keep cancellations to a minimum. If you must cancel, give us at least 24 hours notice. Otherwise you may not be eligible for future appointments.

Fill out the following Dental Hygiene Clinic Appointment Request Form or call 913-469-3808 if you would like to put your name on the list.
