Dental Hygiene Clinic and Staff

The Dental Hygiene Clinic located in the Oswald Building (room 250) on the Cooper campus operates with 20 individual dental operatories including 8 chairs that are radiograph capable. We recently remodeled the clinic in 2011, updating most operatories, creating a lab space and separate radiology teaching lab.

We have free parking for our patients in the front left of the Oswald Building parking lot. They are identified by black signs that say "BCTC Dental Hygiene Patient Parking Only". When you sign in at the front desk of the clinic, we will give you a parking pass to place in your windshield.

The Clinic Coordinator in the Dental Hygiene Program

I graduated from the LCC Dental Hygiene Program in 1987, and have worked in private practice for 15 years before coming back to BCTC as the Clinic Coordinator. I schedule the patients and help to manage the clinic during the school year. As a former student in this program, I can confidently recommend all our clinic services. Email Melissa
