SWC Dental Hygiene Will Refer for DENTAL Services
The Southwestern College Dental Hygiene Clinic does not provide a comprehensive dental examination for patients nor does it provide restorative dentistry (fillings/crowns), oral surgery (extractions), periodontal surgery or orthodontics (braces). It is highly recommended that all patients arrange an appointment with a dentist of their choice for a comprehensive examination, diagnosis, and treatment as indicated.

For assistance in locating a dentist or community clinic, please refer to the websites below.
