YVC Dental Hygiene Program looking for patients

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, WA - Yakima Valley College Dental Hygiene students will be conducting a dental screening clinic from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Monday, April 17th, 2017. They request patients between 18 and 45 years of age and who have not had a professional teeth cleaning for 5 or more years. Prospective patients may call 509.574.4917 to schedule an appointment.

YVC’s Dental Hygiene Program is located in the Weston D. Brown Dental Hygiene Clinic at 1015 S. 16th Ave, Yakima, 98902. Screening cost is $18.00 for patients and includes a $9.00 teeth cleaning fee or free if participants do not return for further treatment. All patients attending the screening will be entered in a free drawing for an Oral B Power Tooth Brush.

The Dental Hygiene Program at Yakima Valley College provides comprehensive oral examinations by dental hygiene students. The YVC Dental Hygiene Clinic provides dental exams, x-rays, teeth cleaning, and sealants. Dental procedures that can be done in the dental hygiene school setting, such as non-complex fillings are also performed.  More extensive dental work and emergency care is referred to local care providers.

Since the clinic is a learning institution, the student work is checked frequently by instructors. YVC’s Dental Hygiene Clinic provides affordable services and accepts patients covered by Washington Apple Health. Patients of all ages are seen throughout the academic year, including seniors and children. Spanish/English translation is available.
