Choosing the Right Clinic


Patients with dental insurance are expected to pay for services as they are rendered. Insurance claim forms are made available to the patient by one of the College of Dental Medicine cashiers. The patient is responsible for filing his/her own insurance benefits for self reimbursement. Help is available upon request at the cashier checkout area.


A fee is charged for all patient services and the patient is expected to pay for the service as treatment is rendered. Since most of the care is provided by dental students who are carefully supervised by faculty, treatment usually progresses more slowly than in a private office. To compensate for this inconvenience, the cost of treatment is substantially lower than those charged by a private dentist. A treatment plan including approximate fees will be presented to the patient prior to treatment being rendered. Treatment plans and / or fees may change as treatment progresses or changes. Patients should expect annual fee increases.

The College of Dental Medicine requires payment in full at the beginning of any treatment for crowns, bridges, partial dentures, complete dentures, or implants. Payment can be made by cash, check, VISA, Master Card, Discover, or American Express.

  • Fees for Routine Care Student Clinic: The initial screening fee, plus the next three scheduled appointments (Radiographs, Periodontal Cleaning, Treatment Planning) is $250.00. Treatment plan fees will be presented before treatment and will be in addition to the initial fee.
  • Fees for General Dentistry Resident Clinic: The fee for the initial appointment is $308.00, which covers gathering information and personal records, discussing treatment options, a comprehensive exam and x-ray series, study models of your teeth, and (if time permits) a dental cleaning.  If the patient has current x-rays of good quality, this may allow for a reduction in costs for the appointment.
  • Fees for Specialty Care Resident Clinic and the Faculty Practice vary based on the treatment needed.
