Dental Hygiene Clinic
Brightening Smiles for More Than 45 Years
Since 1967, the Dental Hygiene program at UC Blue Ash has been preparing well qualified and caring dental hygienists for employment throughout the region. Led by our nationally-recognized faculty, students are guided in the development of knowledge, skills and attitudes needed for positions of responsibility in the oral care system through a unique blend of laboratory, clinical and classroom experiences. This accredited two year program leads to an Associate of Applied Science Degree.
Our dental hygiene clinic is open to the public, enabling students and faculty to serve the community through dental evaluations and preventive treatment.
What To Expect
It may take two or more appointments to ensure complete and thorough treatment. Each appointment may last two to four hours. The services rendered by our students are carefully observed and evaluated by faculty members, therefore treatment proceeds more slowly than in a private office.
Advancement of our students and successful treatment depends on your commitment and ability to keep all scheduled appointments.
In the event you must change or cancel an appointment, please give the clinic at least 24 hours advance notice. Due to limited appointment times available, we may be unable to reschedule missed or cancelled appointments.
We are located in Walters Hall at the far end on the first floor. As you face our campus, we are the building on your right. You will find green-lined visitor parking spaces by our entrance. If spaces are full, please park in any of the white-lined student parking spaces.
We are located on #4 Metro Bus Line (Plainfield Rd.).
