There is no fee charged to you for services at Matthew 25. However, to help defray the costs of the clinic, patients are asked if they would like to give a free-will donation of $10 for dental visits.
There are fees for dental appliances such as dentures, partials,
flippers, and nightguards. Prices are discussed with patients after an appointment as costs vary with size and materials used.
Any tests or procedures performed at Matthew 25 are done without charge. If it needs to be done elsewhere, then special arrangements are made through Matthew 25 by giving you a “referral slip”, but you still may be responsible for some of the cost.
