Why Us?

We’re honored you’ve considered us for your Dental Hygiene needs.  We’re currently accepting new patients.  

Safety.  Our first commitment is to your safety.  We follow the latest, and most stringent, recommendations of government and professional organizations, including the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the American Dental Association (ADA).   Treatment areas are sanitized with the utmost care between all appointments.
All patients are screened for elevated temperatures, and answer a health questionnaire before entering the building.   Strict social distancing guidelines apply to all areas. 

Our Program & Facility.  Our Dental Hygiene and Dental Assisting programs are among the most respected, and oldest, in Arizona.  Procedures are performed by students, who are closely supervised by licensed instructors.  We offer preventative and therapeutic care, from a state-of-the-art facility that features the latest equipment.   Our rates are affordable.  We’re conveniently located in Central Phoenix, a few minutes north of Downtown and the I-10.   

Starting is Easy!

Step 1.  Call our front office coordinator, at (602) 285-7323, to schedule a free, 60-minute Dental Hygiene Assessment.

Step 2.  Download and print the Patient Forms from the upper left-hand corner of this page.  Fill them out, and bring them to the Assessment.

Step 3.  Attend the Assessment, where we’ll determine if we’re a good fit for your needs. Patients moving forward with treatment will be contacted in about a week.   
Step 4.  Meet with a Supervised Student, who will develop your treatment plan. Future appointments will continue to be scheduled between you and the student.

What to Expect

Cost.  The initial Dental Hygiene Assessment is free.   The cost for Dental Hygiene Therapy is $35, which includes:  Dental radiographs (x-rays), an oral cancer screening, a periodontal assessment for gum disease, a dental examination, and cleaning/periodontal therapy.  A full list of services, some of which you may elect at an additional cost, are below. 

Payment is required prior to services being rendered.  You’ll receive a receipt, which you may submit to your insurer for fee reimbursement.

Timing.  We’re a learning institution, which means every aspect of patient care is overseen and evaluated by faculty.  Our students are trained to work thoroughly, and will fully evaluate the oral health of each patient.  As a result, it generally takes four, or more, multi-hour appointments to complete patient care, and the cleaning process.
