Appointment information

The PCC Dental Clinic is open in accordance with other PCC locations. For more information on holidays and other closures, please consult the college calendar. For more information on unscheduled closures please check PCC’s homepage for alerts or sign up for PCC Alerts. New patients are scheduled for a one-hour screening appointment to determine the appropriate scheduling of their treatment. Cleaning appointments are generally 3 to 4 hours in length and depending on the individual needs of the patient, may take 3-4 visits to complete. To schedule an appointment, call 971-722-4909.

You must provide 24 hours’ notice if it is necessary to cancel an appointment: failure to do so will jeopardize your continuation as a patient at the clinic.

The PCC Dental Clinic cannot make commitments to patients in terms of appointment frequency or re-care intervals.
