Rock Valley College’s Dental Hygiene Program is looking for patients who have not received regular routine dental hygiene treatment (cleanings) for at least three years. Patients will also receive other dental hygiene preventative services such as oral examinations, oral cancer screenings, fluoride varnish, and x-rays for a low-cost.
In addition, patients who qualify to sit for a licensure exam for students may receive their initial treatment (dental exam, professional cleaning, x-rays, and fluoride varnish) at no cost.
The RVC Dental Hygiene Clinic is also seeking children ages 5-12 years in need of professional cleanings, dental exams, x-rays, and/or sealants.
Due to the educational nature of the program, several appointments will be necessary to complete care. Please expect multiple appointments 3 hours in length. Depending on the time of the year and the needs of the students, not all patients that call will be appointed.
Dental Hygiene treatment is performed by students who are supervised by dental hygiene faculty consisting of registered dental hygienists and licensed dentists.
The dental hygiene clinic is located on the 1st floor in the state-of-the art Health Sciences Center on main campus, 3301 N. Mulford Rd., Rockford, IL, 61114.
