DENTAL HYGIENE CLINIC AT SHERIDAN COLLEGE

Providing low-cost, high-quality dental hygiene services for the entire community.

SC Dental StudentSheridan College (SC) dental hygiene students and our highly qualified dental professionals are looking forward to providing you with educational, preventive and therapeutic dental hygiene services at a nominal fee.

Since the nature of a clinic is an educational setting, your dental hygiene care will progress at a slower pace than in a private dental office.  Patients can expect an appointment to be one to three hours long, and you may need to return for two to three appointments. Patients can be assured that the instructor/student interaction that requires more time during your appointment means you are receiving the highest standards of quality care.

At the Sheridan College Dental Hygiene Clinic, we are happy to make this service available to all the residents of our surrounding community. This program benefits not only our patients, but our SC dental hygiene students and future dental hygiene professionals.

Available Services

Services performed at the Sheridan College Dental Hygiene Clinic are limited to preventive services, and are in no way intended to replace comprehensive dental care provided by your dentist. In fact, we strongly recommend a comprehensive dental appointment with your private dentist in between visits to the college clinic.
