We offer several different levels of treatment and we have discounts that include SLU employee and family discounts. Fees collected at the time of service go toward the operation of CADE's clinics and make it possible for us to offer dental services at a discount.
Our charges for endodontic and periodontic services are generally 50 to 60 percent less than fees charged in private practices in the St. Louis area. Fees for orthodontic services are generally 30 percent less than those charged in the St. Louis area for private practice.
Dental Specialties of Saint Louis University accepts most insurance plans, cash, MasterCard, Visa, American Express, Discover, CareCredit and personal checks. Pediatric Dentistry is the only clinic that accepts Medicaid or Medicare. Full payment is due at time of service unless other arrangements have been made.
Financing options are available for orthodontic services through both CareCredit and our own in-office plan. The in-office plan requires an initial down payment and a 10 percent financing fee, which is due when treatment begins. The balance may be paid through equal monthly payments.
