Overview of Services
We Practice What We Teach!
Our diverse team of dental professionals will make your dental
care as comfortable as possible. Comprised of dentists who choose to
work in both clinical and academic settings, the OSU Dental Faculty
Practice (DFP) offers the widest variety of dental services in the
region. This unique approach provides you with a single practice for all
of your dental health care needs -- and with the support of the latest
knowledge and research from one of the nation's foremost universities.
Our patients know they can depend on us for routine examinations and
preventive cleanings, as well as treatment of the most complex oral and
maxillofacial problems. In addition, with the help of our dental
anesthesiologists, care can be provided for patients with significant
dental fears, medical illnesses, and mental or physical disabilities.
Your First Appointment
Becoming a patient is easy!
At your first appointment, we'll review your medical history, check
your blood pressure, x-ray your teeth, and examine your mouth and jaws.
This examination will give us important information about you and your
health, and it will also allow us to develop a comprehensive treatment
plan specifically designed to address your dental needs. Future
appointments will be scheduled to resolve any problems and to maintain
your overall oral health.
A word about our payment policies
Patients are responsible for copay(s) and/or payment for services at
the time of treatment. The Dental Faculty Practice accepts many health
insurance programs. If you wish to be treated by a provider for a
specific insurance plan, please be sure to verify that your dentist is a
participating member of your particular plan.
For our insured patients, we require a 20% down payment or your known
co-payment at the time of service. A claim form will then be submitted
to your insurance company. In the event that an insurance payment is
denied or is only partially paid, the balance becomes the patient's
responsibility and is due immediately. Cash, check, Visa, MasterCard,
American Express and Discover are all accepted methods of payment. To
