Seniors in SUNY Broome’s Dental Hygiene program will take their national clinical
board exam on Wednesday, May 4, in the campus’ dental hygiene clinic.
The students are in great need of potential patients for this exam.
Potential patients would be screened to see if they meet the criteria for the test. Overall,
we’re looking for patients who haven’t had their teeth cleaned in more than a year, or
who smoke. The screening is free and takes approximately 30 minutes. There is no
charge for being a board patient and having your teeth cleaned. Patients who meet the
criteria will also have x-rays done at no charge.
Interested? Call the clinic at 778-5015 & tell the staff that you would like to be screened as a potential board patient.
The exam is critical for students, who must have a board patient and pass before
obtaining their license as a dental hygienist. Please feel free to share this information
with fellow students, family members and friends.
