The clinic invites patients, potential patients, former graduates, dental office staff and dentists, health navigators, schools employees, families and friends of Lane Community College. Tours will be provided. Staff will explain how to become a patient at the clinic, which provides low-cost preventive, restorative and emergent care. Students and faculty will talk about the Dental Hygiene and Dental Assisting programs.

The Willamette Street site serves as a clinic for Dental Hygiene and Dental Assisting students. Lane's students achieve high pass rates in their licensing exams and are very successful at finding employment. Nearly all of last year's graduates from both programs are employed full- or part-time in general or specialty dentistry private offices or large group clinics. The job outlook for both careers is very good.

The Dental Assisting program admits 30 students per year for the 9-month program. The Dental Hygiene program admits 26 students per year for the two-year associate program. Upon completion of either program, and national and state board exams, students have all of the credentials needed for employment in the state of Oregon.
