LCC opens new Dental Clinic on Willamette; open house April 16

LCC Dental Clinic treatment areaEUGENE, Ore.— Everyone's invited to the Lane Community College Dental Clinic Open House on Wednesday, April 16 from 5-8 p.m. at the clinic's new community location at 2460 Willamette Street, Eugene. The clinic is open to serve the public.

Lane's Dental Hygiene and Dental Assisting students and staff invite the members of the public, current patients, prospective patients, former graduates, dental office staff and dentists, health navigators, schools employees, families and friends of Lane to the April 16 open house to see what's available.

The clinic provides low-cost preventive, restorative and emergent care for the public and serves as a hands-on, real-world lab for students working under the supervision of licensed professionals.

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.
