Fox College Dental Hygienist Assistant School
Bedford Park, IL
This Dental Hygienist Assistant school was carved out of an existing cafeteria, computer lab, graphics lab and Learning Resource Center. The program called for 15 Operatories visible to the instructor but visually private to each other, 6 shielded dental X-ray rooms, a Panorex X-ray station, Sterilization room, Materials Lab complete with mannequin heads, and a lecture room. Because the curriculum requires the students train on people from the public, a waiting room and reception function was also created to the exterior to accommodate incoming patients. The LRC and cafeteria were recreated in other underutilized spaces of the school during this multi-phased project.
