Clinic Fees

Expect compassionate and comprehensive care at our student dental clinic. The clinic offers reduced rates to patients ready to contribute to oral health care education.

Our student clinic adheres to the highest standards of care throughout the process. The learning environment allows students to treat patients under the supervision of UMKC’s nationally recognized faculty. Costs are significantly lower than private clinics. In exchange patients are asked to set aside more time for treatment. Appointments at the student dental clinic start at 9 a.m. or 1 p.m. Patients can expect to spend most of the morning or afternoon in the learning environment.

Fees average a third to half the cost of a private dentist. Charges must be paid in-full when services are delivered.

The School of Dentistry accepts Missouri Medicaid payments. If you have KanCare (formerly known as Kansas Medicaid), please contact the patient accounts office at 816-235-2122 to discuss your coverage. The school works with you and your dental insurance company to ensure that you will receive the maximum allowable benefit but we do not accept assignment of benefits. We also offer a monthly payment plan with approved credit and we accept VISA, MasterCard, American Express and Discover for payment.
