Community Clinics

About our Clinics

Community College of Denver’s exceptional programs of study has allowed us to expand our teaching capabilities from traditional classroom settings to hands-on instruction resulting in highly revered community services like that of our Dental Hygiene Clinic and the Veterinary Clinic located on the Lowry location.

These two unique programs offer medical services to the surrounding community, providing dental care to over 1,500 patients a year and issuing veterinary services to hundreds of animals a year. Not only do the students in these programs gain the most hands-on learning experience, but the surrounding community benefits with their services as well.

Please note: We do not allow walk-in appointments.

If you or a family member would like to receive access to dental hygiene, please visit the Dental Hygiene Clinic and request an appointment.

If you're a current CCD student or employee, you can sign your pet up for a vet appointment at our clinic. Please contact Dr. Wendy Economou at 303.365.8371.
