Let’s See that Smile!
The University of Oklahoma Dental Hygiene Clinic at Tri County Tech 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.
NEW & Existing Patients
If you are a new patient, you will need to be screened in person (45 minutes). For screening, please call 918.331.3218 to set an appointment. If you are an existing patient, you will need to call 918.331.3218 or schedule your appointment here.
When arriving for your appointment, we will ask you to wait in the hallway to be screened; you will answer questions regarding symptoms of Covid-19 and will have your temperature checked. If you are ill, please reschedule.
Adults will receive a free 45-minute screening appointment. The patient’s oral conditions are rated, and classification is given. Children are also seen in the clinic at 3 years old and older. No screening is required; call to have the child placed on a waiting list. A parent or legal guardian needs to accompany the child to the clinic.
Assignments to students for dental hygiene care are based on the student’s 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 to be assigned.
After assignment to a dental hygiene student, patients receive a complete dental hygiene examination, radiographs (x-rays), if indicated, individualized oral hygiene instructions, and thorough prophylaxis (teeth cleaning) with a fluoride treatment. Other preventive services, such as sealants, are also available. The treatment provided by students is supervised by dental hygiene faculty and a licensed dentist.
