The clinic, which accommodates approximately 1,700 patient visits per year, is operated by the College as a learning/training facility for students in the College’s Dental Hygiene degree program and provides a low-cost dental hygiene option for cleanings and x-rays.

Patients can visit the clinic, located in the Bio-Tech Building on the College’s Middletown campus, to learn about good oral health practices, have their teeth cleaned or dental x-rays taken for a nominal fee. In addition to cleanings and x-rays, the clinic provides polishing restorations, sealants, custom fluoride trays, custom athletic mouth guards, nutritional counseling, and health history screenings. Dental treatments such as fillings, extractions, and dentures are not part of the services offered at the clinic.

Hours of operation during the Fall semester (September through mid-December) are: Tuesdays from 9 a.m. to Noon and 1 to 4 p.m.; as well as from 1 to 4 p.m. only on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. Spring semester (January to May) hours are different and can be accessed via the clinic web site. The clinic is closed when the College is not in full session, as well as during the summer and semester breaks.

Patients should remember that the clinic is operated for teaching purposes, and only individuals who are considered suitable cases for teaching may be accepted. Treatment will be performed by a student and supervised by a faculty member. It usually requires more time than if a similar task were to be performed in a private office. The patient must plan on remaining for the entire appointment time and be prepared for several return visits.

Published fees (subject to change) are as follows: prophylaxis (scaling and polishing) for adults, $20; prophylaxis for senior citizens, students and veterans, $10; prophylaxis for children ages 12 and under, $5; complete x-ray series for adults, $20; panoramic x-ray, $20; bite wing x-ray series (four x-rays), $10; periapical x-rays, $5; pit and fissure sealants, $5 each; athletic mouth guards, $5; and custom fluoride trays, $5. Senior Citizens (ages 60 and older), veterans and students are charged half of the regular fees.

For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call (845) 341-4315.
