New patients will receive an email with a link to complete your new patient paperwork. We request that you submit your paperwork at least 72 business hours prior to your appointment so we are able to prep for your appointment.

Charges for Dental Services

It should be understood by students that dental services are not covered by their campus health fee.

Love To Smile accepts almost all PPO and Premier insurance plans. While it is the patient’s responsibility to know what coverage their plan provides, as a courtesy Love To Smile will verify your benefits and guide you as needed. Cleanings, checkups, and X-rays are 100 percent covered by most insurance plans, so this usually means no out-of-pocket cost for these services.

If your insurance does not cover your exam, you can pay by credit card, Apple Pay or Google Pay at the time of service. Health Savings Account and Flex Spending Account cards are also accepted.  

If you do not have insurance, ask about Smile Club where, for a low annual premium ($504), you can have cleanings, checkups and x-rays at no additional cost, as well as discounts on any treatments you may need. Smile Club can also be combined with dental insurance to utilize discounts on certain treatments where your paid premium be applied to any out-of-pocket cost.

For questions related to costs, insurance and billing, please call 913-491-1200, option 4.
