The EWU Dental Hygiene clinic provides the full range of dental hygiene services allowed by the State of Washington.
New adult patients (age 18 and above) are provided a complete set of x-rays and a dental examination at their first appointment
Other services include:
- periodontal therapy (deep scaling) with numbing
- scaling and polishing
- fluoride and desensitizing treatments
- smoothing and polishing of existing fillings
- placement of silver or tooth-colored fillings
- whitening trays
The EWU Dental Hygiene Clinic clinicians do not do crowns, root canals, extractions, dentures or emergency treatment. If a service cannot be performed in our clinic, the supervising dentist recommends a referral. Please inform your regular dentist of any referrals.
Not all patients meet the teaching needs of our students nor does our clinic replace a private dental practice.
