Cost and Payments

Cost of Service

The College of Dentistry operates on a reduced fee schedule (except for the Allen W. Anderson Faculty Dental Practice). 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.  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.

Payments

We accept cash, personal checks, money orders, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express and Debit Card transactions. We also accept Medicaid (public aid) cards for covered Medicaid (public aid) services in most College of Dentistry Clinics. Visit our list of accepted private insurance plans.
