  • Fees can be up to about 50% lower than private practice (fees vary depending on which type of clinic you receive treatment – general/student, specialty/resident, or faculty)
  • Wide range of services include cleanings, root canals, dentures, fillings, and more
  • Clinics accept dental insurance from various providers
  • Specialty clinics accept priority referrals

Our clinics are generally a great fit for people who want to improve their overall oral health, especially self-pay patients and patients who want to make their insurance dollars go further. In most of our clinics, dentists-in-training work with experienced dentists to provide your care. While the cost of treatment in these clinics is less, appointment times are longer.

Cost of Treatment

Because each patient’s dental needs are unique, we are unable to provide an accurate cost estimate for treatment until a patient is evaluated through an initial exam by one of our faculty, residents or dental students. During the initial exam, our providers will discuss treatment recommendations and outline approximate costs in a treatment plan. This process allows patients to be fully informed of their options and aids in financial planning. The cost of the initial exam varies by clinic and more information can be provided at the time of scheduling. Payment is due at the time of service.

Payment & Insurance

Payment is due at the time of service.

In-Network Insurance

The UAB School of Dentistry is a preferred provider organization for Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Alabama and MetLife group plans and we accept Medicaid and Medicare for dental services that are approved by these entities. If you have other dental insurance coverage, our Business Office can assist in filing these claims as a courtesy; however, payment for treatment will be required at the time of service.

Out-of-Network Insurance

Patients who maintain dental insurance with companies other than Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alabama and MetLife will be required to pay the entire amount of their bill at the time of service. The School of Dentistry will file a courtesy claim to the patient’s insurance company for possible reimbursement to the patient.

Methods of Payment

Your bill can be paid by phone, by mail or in person. Payment can be made by cash, check, or major credit card (Visa, MasterCard, or Discover).
