Dental Clinic

The San Juan College Dental Hygiene Program offers affordable Dental Hygiene services in a state-of-the-art Dental Clinic. Services are provided by students in the Dental Hygiene Program and are supervised by fully licensed Dental Hygienists and Dentists.

Since the Dental Hygiene students are held to the highest possible standards of care, and each procedure is meticulously checked by faculty, patients can expect to receive excellent treatment at a reasonable price.  Since students are learning these procedures, patients can expect also that these procedures will take significantly longer to complete in the school setting than they would in a private practice.

If you would like to contact the Dental Hygiene Clinic, or are interested in becoming a patient please call: (505) 566-3126.
