Scheduling an Appointment
Dental Hygiene Clinic Receptionist: (208) 282-3282
Appointments can be arranged by telephoning the clinic receptionist or through a dental hygiene student. Multiple appointments are usually necessary for completion of treatment, and patients work with the same student each appointment. Appointment length ranges from 30 minutes to 3 hours, but the average appointment lasts one hour and 30 minutes.
Because the clinical services are provided to educate future dental hygienists, effective use of clinical time is essential. Therefore, department policies have been established about cancelled and failed appointments. If you cancel or do not come to two or more confirmed appointments, the student will be permitted to discontinue your care and refer you to a private dental office. If you should need to cancel your appointment, please do so within 24 hours of the scheduled time.

Prior to your first appointment, a Health History form must be completed. If you choose to complete this form in the Dental Hygiene Clinic, please arrive 20 minutes early to do so.
