The Wharton County Junior College Dental Hygiene Clinic
services can help you with your dental care needs. The on-site dental
hygiene clinic typically services over 1,200 patients per year.
Under the supervision of licensed dental and dental hygiene instructors,
our students perform a number of dental care services similar to those offered
at local dental offices. And, we would be happy to forward your dental
records, such as x-rays, to your personal dentist.
Services include dental prophylaxis (dental cleaning), periodontal exam, full
mouth x-rays, panoramic x-rays, oral cancer screening, blood pressure
screening, sealants, dental exam for cavities, oral hygiene instruction,
fluoride treatment, and nutritional counseling. Minimal fees are $15
but are often waived for indigent care; senior citizen discounts are $5.
Patients requiring only sealants or x-rays will be charged $20 but may also be
waived for indigent care or senior citizens. Also, free services are
provided to WCJC employees, students.
Although the clinic is closed during the
