Emergency Clinic

The Emergency Clinic serves to address, treat, and resolve the patient's oral complaint while at the same time providing a learning experience for the students in diagnosis, treatment planning, and treatment in emergency situations.

This may require a:

  • Referral to oral surgery
  • Consultation from pathology, periodontal, endodontic, restorative, prosthetics, and radiology departments
  • Pulpectomy, incision, and drainage
  • Caries control, prosthetic adjustments, expectations, and other palliative treatments
  • Medical consultation

Please be advised that all fees apply; no free services are provided. See below for information about after-hours emergency care.

The Emergency Clinics are:

  • Accessible at all times for registered and walk-in patients during regular hours (8:00 a.m.–5:00p.m.).
  • Located on the first floor in the Oral Diagnosis clinic.
  • Staffed by full-time faculty of the department of general dentistry and 4–6 third- and fourth-year pre-doctoral students on a rotational basis.
  • Overseen by the department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and the General Practice Residency Program
