Dental Hygiene Clinic
Now seeking new patients
Looking for a low-cost option to getting a healthy smile? Check out the TWU Dental Hygiene Clinic.
Notice: The clinic is opening for summer screening hours.
June 29 – July 10
All screenings must have an appointment; no walk-ins will be accepted.
We offer FREE 30-minute screenings to adolescents and adults who have not been patients in our clinic in the past year. The screening helps us determine if you are a match for our services and our students.
At your screening appointment, we will determine if you are a candidate for the dental hygiene care offered in our clinic. Please note appointments in the clinic will be longer than those offered in a private dental office.
Interim TWU Dental Hygiene Clinic Protocol
COVID-19 has had an impact on all of us. We want to assure our patients that the Texas Woman’s University Dental Hygiene Clinic is taking all necessary precautions to ensure the safety of our patients, students, and staff.
Safety has always been our number one focus, and we have always followed CDC and OSHA standards of infection control. Due to COVID-19, we are taking the extended measures recommended by the CDC and the Texas State Board of Dental Examiners to further protect all our patients and team with the following additional protocols.
- All individuals must wear a face covering when on the TWU campus.
- In compliance with the recommendations for public health, anyone with symptoms of COVID-19 will not be permitted on campus and should stay home. We will be happy to reschedule your appointment for a later date.
- No other individuals may accompany a patient to an appointment unless they are needed for translation, a primary caregiver, or a parent of a minor child. These individuals must abide by the protocol below as well as complete the COVID -19 Consent Form, and COVID -19 Health Status Form, and be screened for an elevated temperature.
Before You Come:
- Call the Clinic to schedule an appointment for a free screening. You may make appointments beginning Wednesday, June 24. Appointments will be scheduled between Monday, June 29 and Friday, July 10.
- Complete all necessary paperwork in advance of the appointment and either email them to DentalHygieneClinic@twu.edu prior to your visit or bring them with you at the time of your appointment.
On the Day of Your Appointment:
- You should arrive prior to your scheduled appointment time and remain in your vehicle in the parking lot until called by Clinic staff.
- When you enter the building, you must wear your face mask, and socially distance. This means remaining 6 feet away from others, including in our waiting area, in the building, and on the campus at large.
- You will be screened for elevated temperature and asked to sanitize your hands prior to entering the clinic.
Call 940-898-2888 for more information between June 24 and July 15. TWU dental hygiene students provide these services to the community as part of their education.
