Specialty Teaching Clinics: 

We also offer a full range of Specialty Teaching Clinics. Dentists pursuing advanced degrees provide your care and they are able to provide more complex treatments. Prices and policies vary, but fees are generally 25-50% less than area specialists, but higher than our Comprehensive Care Clinic.

*Procedure examples:
  • Fillings: Prices vary based on tooth, complexity and material used.
  • Root Canals: Prices vary depending on the tooth and complexity. Price estimate is for the root canal treatment only and does not include other treatment that may be necessary. Depending on the complexity of treatment, you may need to be referred to our postgraduate Endodontic Clinic.
  • Crowns: Prices vary depending on tooth and material used.
Faculty Practice (non-teaching clinic):

Faculty Practice services do not involve the teaching process, and their fees are comparable with area private prices.
