Hygiene Clinic

In order to facilitate the educational process of our students, FTCC provides dental hygiene services to the public at the FTCC Dental Hygiene Clinic. Due to the educational setting, our protocols may be unique from a private dental practice.


Additional Policies

  1. The FTCC Dental Hygiene Program follows current treatment guidelines outlined by AHA, ADA, and AMA
    • A medical clearance from your personal physician may be needed prior to treatment to assure your safety
    • Antibiotic coverage may be needed prior to treatment to assure your safety
  2. The FTCC Dental Hygiene Program follows current regulations and recommendations as outlined by OSHA, CDCP, and ADA
    • No patient shall be discriminated against in regards to infectious disease
    • Patients presenting with acute infectious diseases may not be treated until the acute stage clears
    • Persons with a history of Hepatitis B, Hepatitis C, HIV, AIDS, dialysis, joint replacements, or TB will need a medical clearance from their personal physician giving permission for treatment and/or needed treatment alterations
  3. The nature of dental work may result in an accidental exposure or exchange of oral secretions or blood between patients and providers. Should this unlikely event take place post exposure blood testing for Hepatitis B/C and HIV are covered by state law and the cost of this testing is covered by FTCC. Please initial the following line as your consent should the need for testing arise due to an exposure incident.
  4. The FTCC Dental Hygiene Program follows all guidelines in compliance with HIPAA regulations related to confidentiality.
  5. Only patients scheduled for treatment are allowed in treatment areas.
  6. State regulations do not allow unsupervised children to be left in the dental reception area.
  7. FTCC faculty or students will not be held responsible for any damages or losses that may occur as a result of treatment.
  8. Examinations rendered at FTCC are considered precursory and all patients are required to see their personal dentist for follow up examinations. When the clinical dentist reads and interprets a patient’s X-rays and diagnosis the treatment needed, the patient must seek and complete all necessary dental treatment at their private dental provider prior to returning to the FTCC Dental Clinic.

As a patient, you are expected to be considerate and respectful of other patients, students, faculty, and staff of the clinic. Any behaviors identified by faculty or staff as inappropriate or uncooperative that interfere with the educational process will be just cause to terminate treatment and patient status at FTCC. You will be referred to your private dental provider.
