Our fees are based on the type of service a child will receive during their visit. For all persons with no insurance or for services not covered by insurance, we request payment at the time of service. We do accept most major credit cards and debit cards. If you have any questions regarding our policies or fees, please feel free to speak with our patient service representative (804) 828-9095.

Coverage by insurance company

Treatment performed by the pediatric dentist at the VCU Department of Pediatric Dentistry can be covered by your dental plan. When calling to make your initial appointment, please advise our staff if you have insurance and bring your insurance card with you when you come for the appointment. Your dental plan may cover all or part of your bill. There are many different dental plans with varying deductibles, co-payments and coverages. We will prepare and submit our claims to your insurance company. Please contact your insurance carrier to inquire about any unpaid claims. Ultimately it is your responsibility to pay for services rendered.

The department participates with various dental PPO networks and Medicaid/Smiles for Children Program. In addition, we participate with Anthem Dental, Cigna Dental, Delta Dental PPO Plan only, and Met-Life.


Most dental insurance coverage requires a co-payment and deductible from you. Please be prepared to pay these deductibles and or co-payments at the time of service. Our staff will assist you in determining your co-payments prior to your initial visit.
