The University of Oklahoma Dental Hygiene Clinic at Tri County Technology Center offers the public an opportunity to receive preventive dental hygiene care. The purpose of the clinic is to teach dental hygiene students the skills to practice dental hygiene in private offices and public clinics after their graduation and licensure.
Call 918.331.3218 to schedule an appointment today.
Adults will receive a free 30-minute screening appointment. Patient’s oral conditions are rated and a classification given. Children are also seen in the clinic 3 years old and older. There is no screening required, just call to have the child placed on a waiting list. A parent or legal guardian needs to accompany the child to the clinic.
Assignment to students for dental hygiene care is based on the students’ educational needs. The student or faculty member doing the screening examination will be able to give you an estimate of the time you may have to wait for assignment to a student.
After assignment to a dental hygiene student, patients receive a complete dental hygiene examination, radiographs (x-rays), if indicated, individualized oral hygiene instructions, and a thorough prophylaxis (teeth cleaning) with a fluoride treatment. Other preventive services such as sealants are also available. Dental hygiene faculty and a licensed dentist supervise all treatment by students.
