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.

We schedule patient appointments during the Fall and Spring semesters. The clinic is closed for the summer from May through Labor Day and closed for the winter from Thanksgiving through mid-January. Clinic Phone: (859) 246-6857

Please complete the following form to be added to our waitlist for patient appointments. We will contact you in mid-August for the Fall semester or mid-January for the Spring semester to schedule an appointment.
