How do I make an appointment?

It's easy! Call the office at 734-998-9640 or come in during business
hours to schedule your appointment at Community Dental Center.


What treatment options are available?

Your appointment will begin with a comprehensive examination and any x-rays necessary for treatment planning will be taken (if you have recent x-rays, please bring them with you).  We offer dental treatment in many specialties including: 

  • cleanings
  • periodontal treatment
  • restorative services
  • implants
  • crowns and bridges
  • dentures and partials
  • oral surgery

How do I pay for treatment?

Before your dental care is provided, you will receive an estimate of the cost.  Community Dental Center operates on a fee-for-services basis, and payment is due at each visit.  Prepayment of half of the charges is expected for services requiring outside lab work (ie. crowns, bridges, dentures, bite splints.) 

Payment may be made by cash, check, MasterCard or Visa.  For patients with dental insurance, we will submit claims for completed services to your dental insurance carrier. Patients are responsible for any balance that their insurance does not cover. Co-payment is expected at the time of service.

Student Dental Clinics

In the Student Dental Clinics, treatment is provided by dental and dental hygiene students under direct faculty supervision.

Graduate Specialty Clinics

In the Graduate Specialty Clinics, you will receive treatment by residents training for a graduate degree or board certification in their specialty.
