The CU Dental Team Care Clinic provides thorough, comprehensive care at significantly discounted rates. Because we are a teaching facility, care is provided by dental students under the supervision of highly-skilled faculty who oversee all aspects of treatment. Most appointments are scheduled for three hours to allow time for the teaching process. However, this extra time means you get expert opinions from multiple dental professionals.
Before becoming a patient, you will receive a free-of-charge screening exam to determine if a supervised dental student can address your dental needs or if you need specialized care at one of our advanced care clinics.
The screening exam will last approximately one hour 15 minutes and may include dental x-rays if needed. X-rays cost up to $90, and payment will be due at the time of the appointment. You may also bring x-rays from another dental provider if the x-rays were taken within the past two years.
To schedule a screening appointment, please call: (303) 724-2273

With fees typically 30-50% lower than private practices, the CU Dental Team Care Clinic is a great option for patients without insurance and those who want their insurance dollars to go further.
