Community members are invited to take advantage of the low-cost services provided at the Lake Superior College Dental Hygiene Clinic.
The LSC Dental Hygiene Clinic is open by appointment and currently has openings. Appointments are made on a first requested, first served basis. Appointment hours vary each semester so interested parties are encouraged to visit www.lsc.edu/dentalclinic or call (218) 733-5939 for more information and to make an appointment.
Under the supervision of dental hygiene faculty, LSC dental hygiene students provide services which include cleanings, x-rays and fluoride treatments. Additional services such as sealants, mouth guards, and teeth whitening are also available for additional costs.
Prophylaxis (cleaning, x-rays, and fluoride treatment):
Adults – $25
Children and Seniors – $20
College Students & Children (Ages 8-18) – $20
If the price is prohibitive, the cost can be waived.
LSC’s Dental Hygiene Clinic does not provide exams, diagnosis or restorative services. Dental Hygiene Clinic visits are not intended to take the place of a dentist appointment. Supervising dentists for the clinic are on staff for a dental screening and to authorize x-rays, sealants and other expanded functions. If any issue is noticed during the cleaning process, the patient is referred to their own dentist. All patients are encouraged to see their dental provider after using the LSC Dental Hygiene Clinic to follow up with a dental exam.
