* As per NJ State Board of Dentistry standards and the American Disability Act Eastern International College’s Dental Hygiene clinic treats all patients applying for clinical preventative dental hygiene services.
The clinic does not accept any insurance plans including Medicaid. All patients with dental insurances or Medicaid coverage may elect to pay directly for services in the clinic. No personal checks or bills greater than $20.00 will be accepted for payment. Cash and all major credit cards are accepted.
In our teaching facility, all services are provided by Dental Hygiene students who have demonstrated competency in clinical services prior to being granted permission to treat patients. The students are directly supervised by licensed Dental Hygiene faculty and a licensed dentist. These are some of the services offered based on the student and faculty assessments of your individual health needs and include:
- Dental Examination and Cleaning of Teeth
- Dental Sealants
- Fluoride Treatment
The Dental Hygiene Clinic DOES NOT provide emergency or routine care for toothaches, root canals, extractions, fillings, crowns, partials, dentures/denture repairs, or pain management. An off-site dentist of your choice must provide these dental services.
Patients are responsible for paying all fees prior to the beginning of treatment on the day treatment is started. Fees are assessed by the schedule listed and posted below. However, if faculty determines that a patient is not suitable for our teaching clinic, the patient will be dismissed, inactivated and/or referred to an off-site dentist of their choice.
Multiple appointments and extended lengths of appointments (approximately 4 hours) are often required. Treatment may not be completed in one appointment.
It is the patient’s responsibility to notify the Dental Hygiene clinic within 24 hours if an appointment needs to be changed or cancelled. Failure to do so two consecutive times may result in dismissal or inactivation from the clinic. Updating all changes in health and contact information is the responsibility of the patient.
