Emergency Services

If you have a dental emergency, for example severe pain or swelling, and you are not receiving regular treatment at the dental school, you can use our walk-in emergency service.

Walk-in Emergencies

Limited walk-in emergency service is available on a first-come, first-serve basis when the dental clinics are open.  The clinics are generally open Monday through Friday but are closed for holidays and at other times throughout the year. 

The main doors open at 7:00am; the Emergency Clinic begins seeing patients at 9:30am.

NOTE: You are limited to 2 emergency visits per calendar year; exceptions may be made on a case-by-case basis.

Payment Options

We accept cash, Master Card and Visa but not checks for emergency walk-in services.  A fee of $80, applied towards the cost of treatment, must be paid before you will be seen.  We also accept most major dental insurance plans and Medicaid.  You are responsible for the cost of treatment not covered under your dental insurance.

Patients of Record

If you are currently receiving dental treatment at the school and have a dental emergency, call your Patient Care Coordinator during normal business hours.  We provide after-hours emergency for our patients in active treatment.  For after-hours emergencies, call (313) 494-6700 for information.
