dental fees and insurance

UIC College of Dentistry provides comprehensive and specialty dental care at a reduced fee schedule. Our Faculty Practice fees are comparable to private dentists. After a complete evaluation of your dental needs, you will receive an estimate of the costs of treatment. Minimum diagnostic fees, which include an exam and may include  x-rays, are required at the initial appointment. Additional fees will apply if specific treatment is warranted. Payment for out-of-pocket fees is required for non-covered procedures at the time of service.  Payment is required at the time of treatment. 

We accept cash, personal checks, money orders, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express and Debit Card transactions. We also accept Medicaid for covered services in most of our clinics. See below for accepted insurance plans.

All fees are the patient’s responsibility for payment at the time of service. As a reminder, accounts not paid in full within thirty (90) days of service, may be turned over to a collection agency. Patients who are referred to a collection agency will no longer be eligible for dental services at the College.
