Dental Hygiene Clinic

The Dr. Anna T. Harrison Dental Hygiene Clinic services can help you with your dental care needs.  The on-site dental hygiene clinic typically services over 1,200 patients per year.   Under the supervision of licensed dental and dental hygiene instructors, our students perform a number of dental care services similar to those offered at local dental offices.  And, we would be happy to forward your dental records, such as x-rays, to your personal dentist.

Services include dental prophylaxis (dental cleaning), periodontal exam, full mouth x-rays, panoramic x-rays, oral cancer screening, blood pressure screening, sealants, dental exam for cavities, oral hygiene instruction, fluoride treatment, and nutritional counseling.  Minimal fees are $15 but are often waived for indigent care; senior citizen discounts are $5.  Patients requiring only sealants or x-rays will be charged $20 but may also be waived for indigent care or senior citizens.  Also, free services are provided to WCJC employees, students.

Although the clinic is closed during the summer, we offer our services during the fall and spring semesters.
