  • CLEANING APPOINTMENTEach clinic session is 3 hours long, and patient treatment time is 2 hours. Usually, more than one appointment is required to complete treatment. If you do not have time to allow the student to complete your cleaning, please do not begin treatment. Students receive credit only for completed patient assignments. If time is a problem, we suggest that you seek treatment in a private dental office. The fee for treatment at HCC Clinic will depend on the patients needs and the students assignment.

    CANCELLATIONSIt is very important that you arrive promptly for each appointment. Our students must complete a certain number of patients each semester. Your failure to keep an appointment could result in a student not graduating. All cancellations and no-show appointments will be recorded in your chart. Any patient who fails to keep two appointments, without adequate notice, will not be scheduled for further care in our clinic. You are expected to give a minimum of 24 hours notice if you must reschedule an appointment.
