Lake Superior College’s Dental Hygiene Clinic offers affordable teeth cleaning

Members of the community are invited to take advantage of the low-cost services provided at the Lake Superior College Dental Hygiene Clinic.

The Lake Superior College Dental Hygiene Clinic is open to the public by appointment all academic year (September–May). Appointments are made on a first-requested, first-served basis. Appointment hours vary each semester so interested parties are encouraged to call for availability, (218) 733-5939 or email c.upton@lsc.edu.

LSC’s Dental Hygiene Clinic does not provide exams, diagnosis or restorative services. Dental Hygiene Clinic visits are not intended to take the place of a dentist appointment. Supervising dentists for the clinic are on staff for a dental screening and to authorize x-rays, sealants and other expanded functions.

If any issue is noticed during the cleaning process, patients are referred to their own dentists. All patients are encouraged to see their dental provider after using the LSC Dental Hygiene Clinic to follow up with a dental exam.
