CBC Dental Hygiene Clinic

Columbia Basin College has built out a 16,961-square-foot, state-of-the-art dental hygiene clinic on the fourth floor of the Wortman Medical Science Center in Richland. 

The 22-chair clinic serves as a training center for dental hygienists. It houses faculty and administration offices, a patient reception area, study lockers and work areas for clinical practice management. 

It has dedicated laboratory, radiology and classroom spaces as well. 

The $4.3 million project included the build-out of an existing four-floor space. The building’s first two floors house a residency program for Kadlec and the third floor supports CBC’s Emergency Medical Services (paramedic) program and its medical assistant and phlebotomy program.  

The dental clinic opened at the start of CBC’s winter quarter on Jan. 6.  

The project was led by Tammy Sanderson, CBC’s director for dental hygiene, Mary Hoerner, CBC dean for health sciences, and Troy Phillips, CBC director for facilities and capital projects.  

DGR Grant Construction of Richland was the general contractor for the project.

Robert Uhrich of RGU Architecture & Planning of Pasco designed the clinic.
