The doorway into Roane State’s Dental Hygiene Clinic can be overlooked at times. It’s D-107, off the atrium and across from the library of the college’s Oak Ridge campus.
Unbeknownst to the casual passerby, it’s the entrance to a college program regarded as one of the top in the nation.
- a classroom outfitted with the most current dental teaching implements;
- six spotless operatories/treatment rooms containing dental chairs, computers for inputting patient records, and the latest treatment technology;
- two X-ray rooms with digital X-ray capability—one with panoramic X-ray equipment—and a room where X-rays are developed; and
- a receptionist’s area along with a small office.
