The Illinois Central College Dental Hygiene Clinic will move from Downtown Peoria to the North Campus, located in Arbor Hall, beginning this month.
This transition is a part of a bigger plan by Illinois Central College to move facilities from the downtown location to the North Campus. The newly renovated building will give students and faculty members access to new X-ray equipment and digital filing at each dental station for their convenience.
ICC Dean of Health Careers Wendee Guth, is excited about the advancements.
“The move of Health Careers programs to the North Campus will provide faculty and students the opportunity for interdisciplinary teaching and learning, as well as advanced simulation exercises for multiple programs at the same time,” Guth said. “We are excited to provide greater accessibility and high-quality care in a state-of-the-art facility for clinic patients.”
ICC’s plan to combine all its Health Careers into one building. They believe it will provide greater accessibility for its students and professionals while remaining a high-tech facility.
The clinic is staffed by students and teachers in the ICC’s Dental Hygiene program, who provide most of the common dental care received at an independent dental office. Fillings and extractions are not provided.
