Paying for care

OHSU Dental Clinics offers affordable care and we accept most dental insurance plans. In our Comprehensive Teaching and Specialty Clinics prices are 30 to 40 percent lower than area private practices, making OHSU Dental Clinics a great option for patients without insurance or those who want to make their insurance dollars go farther.

OHSU Dental Clinics accepts dental insurance plans, including most Delta Dental and Blue Cross Blue Shield plans, and Oregon State Medicaid/Oregon Health Plan and Washington State Medicaid/Apple Health plans. We cannot provide free care, but our prices are significantly lower than area private practices, making OHSU Dental Clinics a great option for patients without insurance or those who want to make their insurance dollars go farther.

To check your coverage for OHSU Dental providers talk with a patient care specialist. You can contact your insurance plan for specific details.

Your portion of treatment costs is due at the time of service. For payment we accept:

  • Credit and Debit Card
  • Cash and Checks
  • CareCredit payment plans

We are happy to provide cost ranges quotes over the phone for exams and common procedures. As a courtesy we will contact your insurance for an estimate of coverage before your appointment and send in a claim for you after your appointment.
