Billing, Payment & Insurance

Reduced fees are offered in the student clinics as compensation for the patient’s additional time commitment and for participation in the educational process. The College expects payment for services not covered by insurance or the Dental Wellness Plan (Medicaid), including co-payments, on the day of service. Be aware that a half-down payment is required before extensive procedures such as oral surgery, periodontic surgery, endodontic treatment, and prosthodontic treatment are begun. Payments may be made by cash, check, or credit card. Patients may request an installment plan for more extensive treatment through the College’s business office.

If you have any questions about your bill, wish to make a payment, or update your insurance, contact us by calling 319-335-7499 or referring to the College of Dentistry list of clinic and support numbers.
