As of 2015, dental services provided by the UCLA Dental Clinics in Venice and Westwood, California, are not free. However, the clinics provide services at prices of up to 50 percent less than private dental practices.
Fees vary based on the types of dental services needed, and dental providers discuss charges in detail with each patient before treatment begins. UCLA dental students and residents provide services under the careful supervision of faculty members.
Some of the services offered include cleanings, fillings, bridges, root canals and gum surgery. Patients can pay for services at a UCLA Dental Clinic by cash, check or major credit card.
