The dental hygiene clinic on our Portland Campus offers services to the public, functioning as both a community and teaching resource. Our students gain practical experience working in the 20-chair clinic, while the public enjoys a variety of dental hygiene services at a greatly reduced cost.
We accept payment by cash, check, MasterCard, or Visa. We are a participating provider with MaineCare Insurance only. For patients with other types of insurance coverage, our Dental Hygiene staff will assist you with claim submission by providing a coded and itemized list of treatments rendered.
We operate the clinic during the academic year and accept patients by appointment. There are no income restrictions and we welcome patients of all ages. Because we are a not-for-profit teaching clinic, appointments may require more time than a typical visit.
