Dental Screening

If you are interested to become a patient at the School of Dentistry, please call 206.616.6969 to schedule a new patient screening appointment. A $20.00 screening fee will be charged. If you have dental insurance with one of our contracted insurers, this fee may a covered benefit of your plan.

During your screening appointment, a brief oral evaluation and assessment of your dental needs and concerns will be completed to determine if your dental needs are appropriate for our teaching mission.  This screening is not a complete examination and during this visit we will not be providing a definitive diagnosis, treatment plan, or cost estimates.

If accepted as a patient, and you decide to receive dental care at the School of Dentistry, a Comprehensive Examination appointment will be scheduled for a fee of $70.00 – $100.00 plus X-rays  ($75.00 – $140.00). During this appointment a student provider will complete a thorough tooth-by-tooth examination.  At the conclusion of this appointment, you will be given a treatment plan outlining and prioritizing your dental needs and an estimate of cost and time required for treatment.

Screening, Comprehensive Examination and X-ray fees will be due on the date of the visit. We do accept several major dental insurance carriers. Please ask when scheduling your appointment to determine if your plan is one of our contracted carriers.

If after screening your dental needs are not appropriate for your dental student clinics, you also may become a patient of one of the school’s Specialty or Faculty Practice Clinics.
