is it standard procedure for someone other than the dentist to set up your treatment plan and other costs?

Absolutely: Many offices have the treatment coordinator set up the treatment plan, and financial arrangements. This is very standard procedure. The treatment coordinator is professionally trained in appointment scheduling, financial arrangements, insurance options, and more.
