Provides a learning experience for the students participating in the dental hygiene program, and since services are performed by students, your appointment will demand more time than in a private dental office.

A recommendation form will be given to you upon completion of your treatment. If you do not have a dentist, the telephone number of the local dental society or dental schools may be requested.
