If you're interested in being seen in the Dental Hygiene Clinic, call (920) 498-5450 to be placed on a call list for a screening appointment. You will be contacted when an opening becomes available for a screening examination. Your name will remain on the call list until an appointment is scheduled or when two attempts have been made to schedule an appointment. A screening does not guarantee you will be accepted as a client. If you are accepted as a client, you will be scheduled with a dental hygiene student.
