Dental Hygiene Clinic

A dental hygiene student works with a patientThe dental hygiene clinic at Kellogg Community College offers excellent oral health services at more than reasonable rates. All services are provided by student dental hygienists. Services include: review of medical and dental health history, blood pressure screening; oral cancer screening; oral health instruction; dental charting; periodontal assessment; non-surgical periodontal therapy including scaling and root planing, oral irrigation, chemo-therapeutic agents when needed; oral prophylaxis; fluoride therapies; sealants; nutritional counseling; tobacco cessation program; radiographs; athletic mouth protectors; referrals for additional care. Our services are limited to dental hygiene services. We recommend that all patients see a dentist after they leave our clinic.

Each patient provides a unique learning experience for our students. Because the clinic is first and foremost a learning institution, the provision of these services requires appointments that are two to four hours in length. Multiple appointments can be expected for those patients needing more involved dental hygiene care. In return for longer appointments, the patient receives thorough, comprehensive dental hygiene care for a nominal fee.

Please be advised that KCC’s dental hygiene clinic is in compliance with the HIPPA Act of 1996.

To make an appointment, please call 269-565-2008.
