Who provides dental hygiene services at MCC?
Treatment is provided by dental hygiene students working under the supervision of licensed dental hygienists and dentists. Because this is a learning experience, your appointments may be longer than comparable treatment at a dentist's office.

How long will it take to complete my appointment?
Your first appointment will last about three hours. At that time, you'll be given an estimate of how many additional appointments you may need, if any.

What does it cost?
There is a small fee for each service. People 62 and older and those on Medicaid are treated without charge.

Do I need an appointment?
Yes. Call 292-2045 to schedule an appointment. The Dental Hygiene Clinic is open Monday - Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Some Tuesday and Thursday evening appointments are also available. The Center is closed summers.

Where do I park?
From the main entrance on E. Henrietta Road, patients should turn right at the crossroads. Patient parking is available in Lot "K". At the entrance to the lot, press the speaker button and state you are a dental clinic patient. Proceed to the edge of the lot and park in the designated dental patient area. Parking is metered and patients should bring 8 quarters ($2.00) to cover parking fee. Violators will be ticketed.
