NYU College of Dentistry and Columbia University College of Dental Medicine offer lower cost and sometimes free dental services in New York City. Costs vary based on a patient's financial situation and dental needs. Some patients qualify for free services, while others pay a reduced rate for services.
At NYU College of Dentistry, dental students perform procedures under the supervision of dentists. Costs are significantly lower than when seeing a private practice dentist.
Columbia University College of Dental Medicine provides the Community DentCare Network with several locations across northern Manhattan. The clinics provide lower cost dental care, as well as affordable health care services such as immunizations and smoking cessation programs.
