How to pay
Our clinics accept, cash, checks and credit cards. Many insurance plans are accepted; the clinic staff can provide details on insurance when you make an appointment.
Some clinics offer payment plans. CareCredit, a private company that offers credit cards for dental and other health care expenses, is also an acceptable form of payment at UT Dentistry.
All of our clinics, including the clinics with student practitioners, charge fees for services. However, you will find that fees for some clinics are priced well below what you would pay at a private practice.
If you visit our Pre-Doctoral Clinic, you will pay a $13 fee for a screening to determine if your dental needs can be served by the student doctors. We estimate that your charges for the services you receive after the screening will be about 68 percent lower than you would pay at a private practice, according to a comparison with prices listed in the National Dental Advisory Service 2014 Comprehensive Fee Report.
Our advanced graduate clinics, where you receive treatment by dental residents (licensed dentists pursuing advanced training), also has prices lower than what you would pay at a private practice. Services at these clinics come with prices that are about 33 percent lower than you would pay at a private practice, according to a comparison with prices listed in the 2014 NDAS fee report.
At our Faculty Clinics, you'll receive treatment from experienced, board-certified, licensed dentists who also teach at the School of Dentistry. The fees for services performed by dentists from the faculty are similar to those you will pay at a private practice, according to a comparison with prices listed in the 2014 NDAS fee report.
As with any dental clinic, prices for services vary based on the complexity of the procedure and time involved.
