The Dental Hygiene Program is Accepting Patients!

We are in need of patients for preventive services who:

  • Are age 6 or older
  • Are committed to student learning
  • Have time in their schedule for 3 to 5 appointments
  • Can plan for their appointments to last 3 hours each

Patients accepted for dental hygiene care will receive:

  • A head and neck cancer screening, dental x-rays as needed, a complete dental examination, and a very thorough teeth cleaning
  • Quality care at very affordable prices. The dental hygiene treatment fees are only a fraction of the costs since the clinic is a teaching facility.
  • Further discounts offered to those enrolled in financial assistance programs!

All procedures are checked by a licensed dental professional. Our students and faculty will classify each patient to match his/her dental hygiene needs to the student’s educational needs and preparation.

To schedule for your initial screening contact us at (512) 223-5710 or stop by the Health Sciences Building during regular business hours: Eastview Campus, 3401 Webberville Road, Bldg. 8000 Rm. 8162 (across from the campus bookstore).

This clinic does not perform fillings, crowns, extractions, braces or other restorative procedures.
