If you have private insurance

The NYU College of Dentistry welcomes patients with private dental insurance, but does not have the resources to file and manage dental claims. Patients are therefore responsible for paying for treatment at the time services are provided.

To assist you in obtaining reimbursement from your insurance company, our staff will provide you with the all the documentation you require. Most dental insurance plans will reimburse you up to an annual maximum of $1,000 to $1,500. Because the NYU College of Dentistry’s fees are well below average private practice fees, your dollar will go much farther at the NYU College of Dentistry.

NYU College of Dentistry does not accept Medicare.
