General Practice Residency fees will typically
be 1/2 to 2/3 the cost of private practice.
Before providing each patient with an estimate
of treatment costs, a thorough examination and
the necessary x-rays will be performed. With
this information, we can diagnose the case,
develop a treatment plan that helps meet the
patient's goals, and provide the patient with an
estimate of the costs involved.
