We Look forward to welcoming you back!

NYU College of Dentistry has resumed providing care services to our patients, by appointment only. While we are trying to see all those with urgent needs as soon as possible, circumstances may require us to modify or defer certain treatments that pose a high risk.

In order to ensure the health and safety of our entire community, please note these important changes to our procedures:

face coverings

Face coverings are required at all times in NYU Dentistry buildings.

no visitors

Patients should arrive at appointments alone, unless the accompaniment of one caregiver/parent/guardian is necessary.

  • As part of our gradual, phased-in approach to resuming patient care services, we must limit occupancy levels in our buildings. So until further notice, we will not be allowing visitors to enter the College, unless their presence as a caregiver of a patient is required.



First, call NYU Dentistry: 212-998-9800.

  • Hours: 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, Monday through Friday. If you call after hours, please leave a message.
  • A representative will schedule a tentative appointment upon discussion of your dental needs.


Within 24 hours of your scheduled tentative appointment, a representative will call you to be prescreened for your in-person visit.

  • Upon successfully completing the prescreening process — which will involve answering a few COVID-19-related questions — your in-person appointment to be seen at NYU Dentistry will be confirmed.
  • If you do not successfully complete the prescreening process, your tentative appointment will be cancelled, and you may be asked to visit your primary health care provider and/or get a COVID-19 test.


When you arrive at NYU Dentistry, your temperature will be checked and you will be asked screening questions.

  • Upon successful completion of the screening process, you will be asked to check-in at the designated Patient Check-in area.
  • If you do not successfully complete the screening process, you may be asked to visit your primary health care provider.

social distance

When going to your appointment at the designated treatment area, please be respectful of others and maintain appropriate social distance.

  • Please be sure to limit elevator occupancy to no more than 4 people.
  • You will see Health & Safety Reminders throughout our buildings, and your cooperation in following the guidance is appreciated!  


We appreciate your understanding and patience as we strive to provide the best, safest care for our patients.

Payment and Fees

Since NYU Dentistry focuses primarily on education and research, we are able to offer our services at lower fees than the cost of comparable procedures at most private practices in the area. Diagnosis and treatment is provided by dental students under the supervision of NYU College of Dentistry faculty.

Payment for services is due at the beginning of each visit or prior to treatment completion for procedures requiring multiple appointments. Acceptable payment methods include cash, personal checks, money orders, credit card (Visa, AmEx, MasterCard, or Discover), many Flexible Spending Account (FSA) cards, and New York State Medicaid.

NYU College of Dentistry provides care under the State of New York Medicaid Managed Care Programs. For a complete list, please visit our Insurance/Medicaid Information page. >>>

Payment can be made in person or online via the Online Patient Bill Payment system. >>>


Here's what our patients are saying

student dentist with happy patient

I am writing to you to express my complete satisfaction with the level of dental care that I have been receiving from my student dentist, Ms Kavita Patel. She has a most pleasing personality and is very respectful to a 74-year-old.

I feel very comfortable when she is examining and cleaning my teeth; she inspires trust. Her chair-side manner is very reassuring and her handling of dental instruments is very gentle. I appreciate that she keeps in touch with the faculty periodontist, Dr. Kye, and together they keep me abreast of the best plan for my dental health. She updates him whenever necessary. She also has Dr. Kye check her work before ending my appointment.

In my opinion she is already an outstanding dental practitioner. I still have one year left under her care, until she graduates, and will continue to enjoy that special care.
