Treatment at the MCC Dental Hygiene Clinic proceeds at a slower pace than in a private dental practice in order to support learning. Patient care is provided by students and thoroughly monitored by faculty. Each appointment will last three to four hours. Often there will be a need for you to return two or more times for treatment to be completed. Treatment time is determined by the complexity of your dental needs. If multiple appointments are necessary to complete treatment, no additional fee will be charged.
Our dental hygiene students have a limited amount of time set aside to complete their clinical requirements. Completion of your treatment is essential to their success and ability to graduate. If you must cancel an appointment, call us at 978-656-3250 at least 24 hours in advance. Excessive missed appointments, cancellations or tardiness may result in dismissal as a clinic patient. Either a parent or guardian must accompany all minors in order to provide consent for treatment. Call 978-656-3250 to schedule an appointment.
We look forward to working with you!
