Emergency Dental Care

Monday - Friday: 8am - 5pm

The Emergency Dental Clinic is open weekdays for patients who are in severe pain or have signs/symptoms of a dental infection. This clinic is not intended to provide routine dental care.

Patients are seen by appointment only and no walk-in Emergency Services are available.

  • Traumatized patients will be given priority for treatment with other patients seen in the order of their appointment. 
  • You should call as early as 8 a.m. to improve your chances of being seen quickly.
  • You will need to provide a $100 deposit when you sign in for your appointment.  The average estimated cost is $100 (charges may be higher or lower depending on the treatment provided).
  • Please advise staff if the patient is non-English speaking or hearing impaired. Interpreter services may require advance scheduling.
