Clinic Patient Information

Support the Dental Hygiene program!

Wake Tech's Dental Hygiene Clinic provides cleanings, fluoride treatments, sealants, and x-rays for all patients ages four and older. Patients are screened for eligibility and treatment needed; some patients may need treatment that the clinic cannot provide.

Availability of services depends on the number of dental hygiene students in the program in a given semester, and clinic hours change according to student schedules.

  • Treatment is by appointment only
  • Screening appointments take 1-2 hours
  • Cleanings take 2-5 visits of 3-4 hours each
  • Referrals are given if additional dental work is required 
  • Adult patients are asked not to bring children to appointments who are not receiving treatment.  Children under 15 years of age are not allowed on Wake Tech campuses unsupervised and may not sit in the clinic or reception area while a parent/adult is being treated.
  • Children and adolescent patients 4-17 years of age must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian who remains in the clinic reception area at all times.

At the first clinic visit, patients will be given a form to sign that outlines clinic services, what patients can expect, and what their rights and responsibilities are.  See form, below.
