Making an Appointment, Cost

The clinic provides services to 九五至尊官方网站 students, faculty, community members and children beginning at the age of 4. If you have a special dental or medical condition (such as heart disease, hepatitis, high blood pressure or diabetes) we may need a written statement from your physician prior to treating you. The cost for services is $10 (cash, check, credit or debit card) which covers all services and is due at the first appointment.

One of our staff dentists can sign school-age children’s dental cards if they do not need additional treatment. Most children are seen in the clinic during the spring semester.

Appointments

To request an appointment, please complete the 九五至尊官方网站 Dental Hygiene Clinic Appointment Request Form or contact the clinic at 913-469-3808. Requests are taken at the beginning of the fall and spring semesters. The clinic is NOT open in the summer.

Once completed, your name will be placed on a list for patient appointments. Students are responsible for appointing their own patients according to their own schedule and requirements. Therefore, appointments are not guaranteed. If you are appointed, these times are limited and valuable. Please make every effort to keep your appointment date and time. If you must cancel, please give your student 24 hours’ notice. Otherwise, you may not be eligible for future appointments.

Patient’s Bill of Rights

The students, faculty, and staff at Johnson County Community College Dental Hygiene Clinic strive to provide high quality care in a pleasant atmosphere. All patients are entitled to:

  • Considerate and respectful treatment that is comprehensive for dental hygiene needs.
  • A treatment plan that is designed to address those needs will be developed for you to review.
  • Treatment will be in a clean and safe environment.
  • Receive treatment without discrimination as to sex, race, color, national origin, disability, age, religion, marital status, parental status, military status, veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity, genetic information, or source of payment.
  • Advance knowledge of the cost of the dental hygiene service(s).
  • Access to complete any current information about his/her oral conditions.
  • Receive information that is needed to give informed consent for any proposed procedure or treatment.
  • An explanation of the recommended dental hygiene treatment, treatment alternatives, and the expected outcome.
  • Dental hygiene treatment that meets the professional standard of care.
  • Confidentiality regarding your medical conditions, oral health status, and patient records in accordance with state and federal law.
  • Refuse treatment and be told what effect this may have on your oral health.

The Dental Hygiene Clinic provides limited services. Our staff dentist will give written referrals for recommended services beyond the scope of the Clinic’s services. Patients are encouraged to routinely seek appointments with their community dentist. A referral list of community dentists will be given upon request, but referrals are not endorsements. The choice of a dentist is a personal decision.  Information about a dentist’s license can be found on the Kansas Dental Board website.

You will be informed if there is a need for a medial consultation with your physician regarding your current health. Treatment at the Clinic may be denied or delayed based on certain medical conditions.

Compliance requirements of the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA) are included within the curriculum of the 九五至尊官方网站 Dental Hygiene Clinic. Confidentiality of individual records is maintained. Only members of the faculty, staff, and students with a legitimate need are allowed access to patient records. Release of patient records requires the individual’s written consent.

Expectation of Our Dental Hygiene Patients

  • Since the 九五至尊官方网站 Dental Hygiene Clinic is an educational learning environment, your treatment may take several appointments. If it does, you will be informed at your first appointment of the approximate amount of time needed.
  • Because students must complete patients for credit, we must ask that you commit to the time frame and appointments you are given.
  • Arrive on time and respect faculty, students and staff while at the 九五至尊官方网站 Dental Hygiene Clinic.
  • Give your student dental hygienist twenty-four (24) hours’ notice if you must cancel a scheduled appointment.
  • If you break your patient care appointment commitment more than once, this could affect your ability to be a patient in the clinic.
