Teaching Clinic

Located in the LHS building, the Teaching Clinic offers a $5 initial evaluation to identify new teaching patients. This fee is waved for DVC employees and students. The initial evaluation takes approximately one hour. Your teeth will be evaluated for build up of plaque and calculus. This is a good way to get a general idea of what is going on around your teeth and gums, however it does not take the place of a comprehensive dental exam with your dentist. If you qualify, you can apply to be a teaching patient for low cost x-rays and cleanings (requires multiple 3 hour visits).

The DVC Dental Hygiene Teaching* Clinic offers low cost, high quality dental cleanings.

Teeth Cleanings for Adults

Fluoride Treatments
