Cost & Billing Information
Cost of Service
The College of Dentistry is not a free clinic. We operate on a reduced fee schedule (except for the Allen W. Anderson Faculty Dental Practice). The cost of treatment provided by student dentists is lower than private practitioners, but will take longer than in most private dental offices.
After a complete evaluation of your dental needs, you will receive an estimate of the costs of treatment. Payment is required at the time of treatment for patients treated in student clinics. Fees for treatment in the Allen W. Anderson Faculty Dental Practice are comparable to those charged by private dentists in the area.
We accept cash, personal checks, money orders, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express and Debit Card transactions.
Medicaid (Public Aid)
We also accept Medicaid (public aid) cards for covered Medicaid (public aid) services in most College of Dentistry Clinics. Children have a broader range of covered benefits. It is the patient's and/or parent's/guardian's responsibility to know and understand their applicable covered benefits. Patients: If you have specific questions regarding your coverage or benefits please contact DentaQuest at 1.888.286.2447.
The Allen W. Anderson Faculty Dental Practice and Graduate Prosthodontics
(Room 361) do not accept Medicaid (public aid).
Minimum diagnostic fees, which include an exam and radiograph (x-ray) are required at the initial appointment. Additional fees will apply if specific treatment is warranted. Your treatment may be covered by Medicaid based on eligibility. Payment out of pocket is required for non-covered procedures at the time of service.
We provide information for insurance claims and will assist patients in filing claims when applicable. Individuals who qualify may request special payment arrangements for orthodontic treatment or other complex treatments.
Effective June 1, 2012 the College of Dentistry accepts Delta Dental in the following clinics: Endodontics, Periodontics, Orthodontics and Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery.
