Hiwassee College Dental Hygiene Clinic
Hiwassee College Dental Hygiene Clinic charges $20 for a dental hygiene cleaning and may include the following on an as needed basis at no additional charge: Oral exam, Radiographs (full mouth series, panoramic, bitewings), nutritional counseling, fluoride treatment, tobacco counseling, oral hygiene instruction, oral cancer screening, prophy, scale and root plane. Sealants, night guards, and professional take-home whitening kits with custom trays are available at additional cost. The funds from the bleaching kits support student mission trips, community projects and the student's graduation Professional Pinning Ceremony.
Call 420-1234 to schedule an appointment, which are scheduled for either 8am or 1pm (Please leave a message if prompted). Because the clinic is a learning environment, the patient treatment time maybe around 3.5 hours.
The brand new high tech dental clinic has five operatories fully equipped with medical grade computers for patient records management, digital x-rays, intra-oral cameras, and ultrasonic scalers. Dental hygiene students are provided with the most up to date technology and equipment including one of the first dental clinics in the area to provide portable digital x-ray equipment.
Hiwassee Dental Hygiene students will be offered opportunities to not only serve the local community in the dental clinic, but they will also have opportunities to participate in mission trips and service learning experiences with the public health department. These experiences will better prepare our students to be conscientious and compassionate health care providers that have a commitment to oral health and lifelong learning and service.
