Patient Service Information

Patients are seen by appointment. We will accept "walk-ins" on emergency basis only. We ask that you please call us within 24 hours to cancel or re-schedule an appointment. This will help serve you and our other patients more efficiently. We accepting MCNA, Dentaquest, Amerigroup Advantage, and United Concordia.

Before your dental care is provided, you will receive an estimate of the cost. Fees are discounted based on family size and income. We make every effort to keep the cost of dental care affordable. The center operates on a fee-for-services basis, and payment is due at each visit for basic dental treatment (i.e. exam, fillings, extraction, cleaning, sealants) etc.  Prepayment of 75% of the charges is expected for major services requiring outside lab work (i.e. crowns, bridges and dentures). Payment may be made by cash, check, and most major credit cards.


Behavioral Health

We receive generous funding support through the United Way of El Paso County, the Health Services and Resources Administration and the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Services are provided by a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner, Licensed Professional Counselor, and Master's level licensed Social Workers who provide diagnosis, consulting, and psychotherapy.

Services include direct diagnosis, treatment, referral, and follow up to patients age 12 and over, as well as families.  Our mental health providers consult regularly with the patient's Primary Care Provider to coordinate care.  The approach selected is the one that best matches the needs of the individual client.

The immediate family of patients is actively involved in treatment planning and therapy; this is always the case when the patient is a child.  Our collaborative approach to treatment empowers patients, parents, and their families by educating them about what questions to ask of a physician or psychotherapist.

San Vicente provides the following services:

  • Free screenings for Depression, Anxiety, alcohol and drug dependency
