First Visit

We welcome new patients to choose from one of our outstanding programs. Click links above for more information.

The Graduate Clinic is a teaching clinic, in which graduate students treat patients under supervision of experienced faculty members. Graduate students are licensed dentists that have decided to further their education by specializing in Orthodontics. Appointment duration can be longer as the students are learning. To schedule an appointment, please call (612) 625-6444.

The Faculty Practice patients are treated by full-time faculty members and their dental assistants. In the Faculty Practice, we also accept most major insurances. We will file any charges to your insurance carrier to help simplify your orthodontic experience. To schedule an appointment, please call (612) 626-2011.

The cost of your orthodontic treatment will vary depending on your individual needs, treatment plan, and treatment duration. In general, our fees are approximately 20-30% below private practice fees in the community. Our staff will discuss with you the cost of your treatment and each available payment plan option, so that you can make the best choice for you and your smile.
