Dental Hygiene Schools

University of New England, Westbrook College, Stevens Avenue, Portland: School of Dental Hygiene provides preventive services, September - April. (207)221-4900

Dental Health Programs

University of Maine at Augusta - Bangor Campus: Dental Health Programs - provides preventive services, September to April.

Offers a range of preventive services provided by registered dental hygienists, often practicing in Public Health Supervision status. They provide services via contracts and other arrangements with schools, Head Start and WIC agencies, other community agencies such as Boys & Girls Clubs, and others. There are a number of these programs in Maine, some operate locally, and others have a regional or state wide focus. Independent Practice Dental Hygienists also offer preventive dental hygiene services. The Maine CDC Oral Health Program tries to maintain a current list of Dental Hygiene Programs; because this list may change from time to time, it is not included here.  For more information, contact the Oral Health Program

A dental clinic is a dental program with a fixed site, permanent equipment, employed staff and regular hours, where people may receive a full range of preventive and restorative dental care.  Specialty services may or may not be available.

Mobile programs may either use a vehicle, such as a specially outfitted truck, van or coach, in which dental equipment has been installed, or may be mobile in the sense that they bring portable equipment to the various locations where they provide services.

Volunteer or voucher programs depend largely on health professionals who donate their time to provide dental services.  Such programs in Maine are individually designed and no two are alike.  A voucher program coordinates the referral to services of qualified individuals and may or may not provide some services prior to referral.
