Emergency dental care

How to get emergency care

If you are NOT receiving current care at the dental school and have a dental emergency, you can use our walk-in emergency service. Emergency service is available Monday through Friday on a first-come, first-served basis. You can only be seen three times for emergency care. Further care may be accomplished by becoming a patient of record.

The south doors of the school open at 7:30 a.m. The first 4 patients in line that morning will be seen in the clinic starting at 9 a.m.

Payment options

We accept cash, Visa, Discover and Master Card for walk-in emergencies, payable before being seen. We accept Wisconsin Medicaid (Title 19). (See Forward Health providers list on payment page.)

We do not accept checks or American Express.

What to expect

Emergency dental care provided by dental students under the supervision of licensed dentists.
