Patient Care Clinic

The Dental Hygiene Care Clinic at New York City College of Technology located in the new Academic Complex Building, 7th floor, 285 Jay Street, Brooklyn, is a hands-on teaching facility. Every initial visit will involve medical and dental history and a thorough assessment. This will help determine whether the individual patient is suitable for treatment at our facility. Cases that are beyond our scope of treatment will be given a referral. Dental x-rays and/or Medical clearance from a physician may be required prior to dental hygiene treatment.

Dental hygiene appointments are approximately 3-3.5 hours in length and the number of appointments needed to complete dental hygiene care will be determined by the type of treatment the patient requires. All treatment is provided by students and supervised by licensed dentists and registered dental hygienists.
