USI Dental Hygiene Clinic open to the public

USI
Although the Vanderburgh County Health Department’s Community Dental Clinic is currently closed, the community can still benefit from reduced cost dental hygiene treatment at the USI Dental Hygiene Clinic.

The clinic, located in Room 1044 in the Health Professions Center, offers professional services to adults and children of all ages. All services are performed by students in the Dental Hygiene Program and are supervised and evaluated by USI faculty.

Services are limited to dental hygiene treatment and x-rays.

“You are helping to educate the student clinicians,” said Jennifer Bartek, clinic faculty. “It’s a win-win situation. The patients are getting wonderful care and dental hygiene treatment, and the students are learning from a variety of experiences.”

Dental hygiene treatment is $35 for adults age 18 to 59; $15 for seniors age 60 and over; $20 for teens age 11 to 17; and $10 for children age 3 to 10. These fees are an “all inclusive” fee which provides dental hygiene treatment, radiographs (x-rays) and sealants (for children – if needed) all in one low fee. Duplicate copies of radiographs can be sent to your dentist at no additional cost. Combination packages of services are available with reduced fees.

Fees for services are due on the day of treatment. The Dental Hygiene Clinic accepts cash, checks, MasterCard, Visa, American Express, and Discover. The clinic cannot accept post-dated checks or provide insurance form completion for services provided.

Prospective adult patients should plan on approximately three-and-a-half hours for an appointment. Appointments for a child are approximately 90 minutes in duration.

During the spring semester (January through April), appointment times are 8 a.m., 1 p.m., and 5:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday. During the fall (September through December), appointments are available at 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. Monday and Wednesday and 5:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
