Dental Hygiene Clinic
State Fair Community College dental hygiene students deliver comprehensive evidence based dental care.
The State Fair Community College Dental Hygiene Clinic exists to deliver quality oral health to the community while educating future hygienists. The state-of-the-art dental clinic is located in the Fred E. Davis Multipurpose Center on campus.
Dental hygiene students start seeing the public patients after they have passed extensive competency exams their first semester. The students are supervised by experienced dental hygiene instructors and a supervising dentist is available for consultations and referrals.
The dental hygiene student under the auspices of the supervising staff is able to assess, educate and treat patients with periodontal disease. Exposing radiographs and advising patients on preventive issues such as dietary changes needed in order to arrest and prevent decay are important aspects of preventive care each student learns. The administration of local anesthesia and nitrous oxide is a service the dental hygiene student can perform as well as dental sealant delivery and other therapeutic interventions and strategies.
Summer appointment times are available Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays; fall appointment times are available Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
Appointments are scheduled two times a day and patients are asked to be available for two to three hours for an appointment. The length of time is due to the thoroughness of care and the necessity of the student being evaluated on procedures being performed.
