USC Dental Faculty Practice

Paying for Your Dental Care

The care and expertise of USC faculty dentists is within reach — our faculty dentists charge fees commensurate with private dental practices in the region.

We accept some Delta Dental PPO plans and Delta Premier. We additionally accept the CIGNA Radius PPO plan, and we are an out-of-network contracted CIGNA PPO provider. Payment is expected for all services at the time services are rendered. We accept cash, checks, money orders and credit cards (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover). Other financing options — as well as payment plans — may be available. Ask when you call to make your appointment.

For USC Faculty and Staff

The Faculty Practice is part of the USC Network, so up to 100 percent of the cost of your dental treatment may be covered (up to $1,500 per year).

Deductibles may apply, including USC Network Delta Dental PPO members.

For more information, go to USC faculty and staff dental benefits.

USC Gold Card Members: A 20 percent discount will be applied to the usual charge of most dental and dental hygiene procedures, which are not otherwise covered by the patient’s insurance.

For Faculty Practice insurance and billing questions, call (213) 821-8228 or (213) 821-6565.

For USC Students

There is an optional Delta Dental PPO plan for Trojan students. This plan requires a separate enrollment than the mandatory student health insurance.
