Our students and instructors are here to provide excellent dental hygiene care to the community.

Excellent dental hygiene care—free to the community.


Our free Dental Hygiene Clinic is a teaching facility offering a variety of services for adults and children, delivered by both students and supervising dental hygienists and dentists. 

Dental Hygiene tells us a lot about your overall health, and these free exams often uncover issues that may otherwise go unchecked.

About WCU

With more than 100 years of education experience, West Coast University has become a leader in healthcare education. It's from this experience that we've created focused and distinctive programs providing our students with some of the most comprehensive and respected degree programs available. As part of the culture of healthcare at West Coast University, the Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene program has been designed to provide students with the knowledge, skills, and values needed to become exceptional healthcare professionals and providers. The program is accredited by the Commission on Dental Accreditation (CODA) of the American Dental Association and is one of only four Bachelor of Science programs in California, as well as the only program of its kind in Orange County. As part of the Dental Hygiene program and with West Coast University's strong commitment to its local community, the West Coast University Dental Hygiene Clinic has been established to not only educate our students as future dental hygienists but also give back to our community and those we share it with. It is because of this commitment and determination we proudly offer all services at no charge to our patients.

With a dedicated faculty and staff working with students to help them achieve the hands on experience needed to complete their education, the West Coast University Dental Hygiene Clinic works to improve the dental health of those who may not have the means to visit a private practice dental facility for dental hygiene preventive and therapeutic care. The West Coast University Dental Hygiene Clinic has been designed to provide patients with a quality experience. From the technologically advanced facility that has been constructed with 30 clinical care areas including 10 dedicated radiology/X-ray areas for traditional and digital imaging including panorex X-ray equipment to on site sterilization that meets or exceeds OSHA standards. The West Coast University Dental Hygiene Clinic is also a dedicated "paperless" facility with all records being stored electronically not only allowing for easy transfer to a patient's new or regular dental facility or office, but it also lessens our carbon footprint which is good for all of us. Each component of the facility has been designed to provide clinic patients with top quality services using advanced technology and — best of all — at no cost to them.
