by Christi Mathis

CARBONDALE, Ill. — The Southern Illinois University Carbondale Community Dental Center is continuing to serve the community, even during the ongoing pandemic, and throughout 2021, the clinic will offer monthly specials to make its services even more affordable.

Low-cost dental care for everyone

The SIU Community Dental Center, 1365 Douglas Drive, is a full-service dental office providing preventive and restorative care to students, faculty, staff and community members at discounted rates.

Exams, X-rays, cleanings, fillings, fluoride, sealants, extractions, root canals, crowns and dentures are available. At this time, all services are self-pay via cash or credit card; insurance isn’t currently accepted, although it may be in the future.

Current and upcoming specials

The clinic first offered a special in December, an examination and X-rays for $50, and it was so well-received, the staff has decided to offer specials all year long in 2021 to serve the public.

The special pricing for the first quarter of the year includes:

  • January — $50 off a crown.
  • February — $10 off per extraction, with a maximum of three extractions.
  • March — free fluoride treatment with teeth cleaning, a $15 savings.
