Our clinic operates on Mondays and Wednesdays (8:00 a.m.-12:00 noon and 1:30 p.m.-5:30 p.m.) during Fall, Winter and Spring quarters (Sept. through the end of May). Appointments are also available on Tuesday and Thursday mornings during Winter and Spring Quarters (January through the end of May). Restorative procedures (fillings) are provided on Thursday afternoons from January through the end of May. During the summer (July through mid-August) the clinic is open one day per week.
Fees and Payment Policy
Our fees are approximately one-third to one-half those in private dental office. Since we are a self-support clinic, we require that fees for services provided be paid on the day of treatment. Prompt collection of fees is necessary to retain the low fee schedule. We accept cash, checks, debit and credit (Visa and MasterCard). We do not accept insurance for payment.
If you require additional copies of x-ray films, you must complete a written consent form and pay a fee. Please allow at least 2 weeks notice for duplication time. Duplicate sets of films cannot be provided when the clinic is closed between quarters.
Completion of Care
After your dental hygiene services have been completed, you are then considered a maintenance patient. We are unable to provide care to every maintenance patient. By maintaining a professional relationship with a private dental office, you can set up a maintenance schedule with them.
Children are welcome as patients. Facilities and personnel are not available for supervision of children who are not patients. Childcare arrangements should be made before arriving for an appointment; otherwise the appointment will have to be rescheduled.
The dental hygiene clinic does not discriminate on basis of race, color, national origin, sexual orientation, sex, age, or disability.
We keep a record of the health care services we provide you. You may ask to see and copy the record. You may also ask us to correct that record. We will not disclose your record to others unless you direct us to do so or unless the law authorizes or compels to do so.
