The clinic is used to instruct the college's Dental Hygiene program students, and in doing so, also serves as a public dental health clinic. Each year, thousands of Capital Region residents are provided low-cost dental hygiene care through the clinic.

Hudson Valley Community College annually sends approximately 300 graduates into the Capital Region health care workforce, making it one of the largest health care training centers in the Capital Region.
