Dental Care

Codman’s Dental department welcomes all patients starting from their first tooth, usually at about 6 months old. We strive to deliver high-quality, compassionate, timely, and cost-effective dental care to all patients.

Our department includes a broad mix of general and specialty providers, and offers a vast array of dental services, including urgent appointments. We provide all screening, preventive, and restorative dental treatments. Root canals are performed by our on-staff endodontist.

Some members of the Dental department have faculty positions at Boston University and Tufts Schools of Dental Medicine. The department provides on-site training to Boston University and Tufts students in dentistry and oral hygiene.

We also work with Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) Resident Dentists. Through the AEGD programs we can deliver the highest quality of comprehensive dental care to the broadest range of the population with a knowledge, comfort and ease in treating the high-risk patient and underserved segment of the population, including: HIV/AIDS, medically compromised, physically handicapped and geriatric populations.

Frequently Asked Questions

Patient statements are issued on a weekly basis for any new patient responsibilities that have been identified within the previous week. For accounts with balances less than $25.00, additional statements are issued every five weeks. For accounts with balances of $25.00 or more, if the patient has not paid the balance by the time the next statement is due, the account is referred to our reminder agency, which then begins a series of letters and calls reminding them that their balance is overdue.  No additional statements are sent out.
