Delta Dental insurance covers many of our dental services, subject to deductibles and copayments. For other dental insurance plans, we ask for payment at day of service and will submit a standard dental claim form as a courtesy.
We also accept Mastercard, Visa, and personal checks at the time of service, and students can charge dental services to their student account. If you have your invoice handy, you can pay your bill online.
A few special procedures are covered by the MIT Traditional Health Plan and the MIT Choice Plan. Please review your benefit description or contact Blue Cross Blue Shield at 1-800-424-0794 for more information.
Routine dental care is not covered by the MIT Student Health Insurance Plan (MIT SHIP). Patients who are members of the MIT SHIP and are between the ages of 16 and 18 years old have dental coverage as part of their health plan. Contact the MIT Student Insurance Office at email@example.com for more information.
If you have an urgent dental problem or emergency after hours or on weekends, contact MIT Medical’s Urgent Care Service (617-253-4481) for evaluation and triage. Our general dentists are on call to provide advice to the Urgent Care Service after hours and on weekends, when the Dental Service is not open.
If you have a serious dental emergency (e.g., facial trauma, jaw fracture, avulsed tooth, uncontrolled bleeding, or airway compromise), you will be referred to the Massachusetts General Hospital emergency room.
If your problem is urgent but not serious (e.g., chipped tooth, tooth pain, lost crowns, broken dentures or fillings), we will see you as soon as possible, usually the next day. Most hospital emergency rooms do not treat dental problems like these.
