The St. Petersburg College Dental Hygiene Clinic has been in the community for over 55 years providing cleaning and x-ray services to more than 2,500 patients from the community each year. It is located in the heart of Pinellas County at the SPC Health Education Center in Pinellas Park on the corner of 66th Street and Park Boulevard. Our clinic offers a supervised environment for our skilled Dental Hygiene students and affordable preventive care for members of the community.

For this summer only, the clinic is offering Five Dollar Fridays for children and teenagers ages 5–17. This includes an exam by a doctor, x-rays, a cleaning, and fluoride for only $5 if the appointment is scheduled on a Friday throughout summer 2021! This is a $200 value.
