Did you see a problem with this listing?
Community College of Denver’s Dental Hygiene Clinic, located at Lowry, provides preventive and therapeutic dental services to adults and children (ages four and older). With approximately 1,500 people visiting us annually, this clinic is a self-supporting, non-profit facility operated by college faculty, staff, and students.
Dental hygiene students—instructed and supervised by dental hygiene faculty—provide all dental hygiene care while the clinic dentists provide dental exams for every patient. In addition, our faculty review and evaluate all of the treatment rendered by students.
Because CCD’s dental hygiene program is designed and maintained for teaching purposes, scheduling and dental hygiene services differ from those of a private dental office. Those accepted for treatment are patients whose dental needs or problems have teaching value and who have the extra time required for treatment. This is an educational setting, so appointment times are restricted to open clinic times during academic semesters.
Patients with medical or dental conditions that hinder the proper treatment may not be acceptable for a clinic appointment in this educational facility. In certain circumstances, your physician may need to be consulted before you undergo dental hygiene treatment in the clinic. A thorough screening of your health is for your protection.
Children under four (4) years of age are not considered mature enough for clinical care in this teaching clinic, and all children age 12 or under must be accompanied by an adult for the entire appointment. Minors (under 18 years of age) must have the medical/dental history form completed and signed by a parent or legal guardian at each appointment and before services will be rendered.
Your first appointment will be a screening to determine which of your dental needs can be met in the Dental Hygiene Clinic. After this initial visit, additional appointments will be scheduled to complete your treatment. A specific treatment plan will be explained to you; generally a complete prophylaxis (teeth cleaning) requires a minimum of two (2) three-hour appointments. If you have not had your teeth cleaned recently, you should plan on several appointments.
Patients should arrange an appointment with a dentist of their choice for a comprehensive oral examination and diagnosis following completion of the services provided at this clinic.
This is a teaching institution and treatment is completed more slowly than in a private dental office. To ensure acceptable quality, the instructors check student work frequently. When making appointments, we prefer to schedule you for three to four (3-4) hours. This allows us to accomplish more care in fewer visits. If procedures are not complete at the end of the clinic session, we will schedule another appointment.
Just as your time is valuable, so is that of your student dental hygienist. Our students depend on your cooperation to complete requirements necessary for graduation. You can help the student, and speed up your treatment, by arriving promptly at your scheduled appointment time. If you must cancel an appointment, please give at least 24 hours notice by calling the clinic receptionist, 303.365.8338. Inability or unwillingness to cooperate with all recommended treatment and procedures may result in discontinuance of service. We ask your understanding and cooperation for the extra time and patience, which may be required, and hope that the special attention and care you receive will compensate.
