Adult Patients

You must be an established medical patient at Christ Health in order to schedule a dental appointment.

Treatment Plan Appointments

Treatment plan appointments are available to established medical patients only and are required prior to cleaning or non-emergency dental procedures. Once the initial visit is complete, the dentist will compose a treatment plan which may include a dental cleaning which can vary in type and price.

For any patients experiencing pain, infection, or swelling of an individual tooth, we offer Emergency Appointments, as described below.

Emergency Appointments

Emergency appointments are available to established medical patients only. These visits are for patients experiencing pain, infection, or swelling and want same-day treatment for the affected tooth. We perform an exam and x-ray of the affected tooth and propose the appropriate treatment. Following the Emergency Appointment, the patient can return another day to complete a Treatment Planning Appointment.

Uninsured Patients

For patients without dental insurance, we offer a Sliding Scale discount. You will need to bring proof of income for yourself, spouse and children under 18 years old to take advantage of the Sliding Scale discount.

The fee for a Treatment Plan Appointment is $40-$44. You will receive a treatment plan that lists the services needed, along with the associated prices based on the Sliding Scale you qualify for. The fee for the Emergency Appointment is $65-$69.
