Get More for Less

SHP Dental Service fees are generally 50-60% less than those of private practice dentists. Your payment of the university health and dental fees are required to utilize our services, but MSU student insurance is not necessary.  Fees are charged for all treatments provided and payment is required at the time of service.  We accept cash, credit cards, Cat card, or may bill your student account. 

Cost of Services can be reviewed online, or you can contact the Dental Office at 406-994-2314.


  • Patients can schedule appointments in person or by calling 994-2314. 
  • Patients needing dental treatments other than cleanings must first see the dentist for an examination or consultation. Please call 994-2314 to schedule an appointment.  Students who have recently been examined by a private dentist may have their records forwarded to the MSU dental clinic at [email protected] . 
  • Failure to show for two dental appointments within a semester results in revocation of dental clinic privileges for the remainder of that semester.


The MSU Student Insurance Plan does not cover dental services. SHP Dental Services is willing to assist in the submission of claims for private dental insurance. However, SHP Dental Services does not accept assignment of insurance benefits. Additionally, SHP Dental Services does not accept Medicaid, Indian Health Service, Veteran's Administration, or other third party payments.

*Note: If you are 18 and under, your MSU Student Health Insurance may cover dental services.
