Providing affordable, high-quality dental services for the entire community.

Dental Hygiene LCCC dental hygiene students and our highly qualified dental professionals are looking forward to providing you with educational, preventive and therapeutic dental hygiene services at a nominal fee.

Because of the nature of a clinic in an educational setting such as ours, your treatment will progress at a slower pace than in a dental office.  Patients can expect an appointment that is one to three hours long, and you may need to return for two to three appointments.  Patients can be assured that the instructor/student interaction that requires more time during your appointment also means that your care meets the highest standards of quality.

At the LCCC Dental Hygiene Clinic, we are happy to make this service available to all the residents of our community.  This program benefits not only our patients, but our LCCC dental hygiene students and future dental hygiene professionals.
