Emergency Dental Care

How to Get Emergency Care

Our Emergency Walk-in Clinic is for adult patients who are NOT receiving current care at the dental school and have a dental emergency. Emergency service is available Monday through Friday on a first-come, first-served basis. You can be seen only two 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. Our walk-in emergency service clinic generally sees 5 walk-in patients per day. Please note, this number is based on our coverage and can change. Please call (414) 288-6790 for additional information.

Children 12 and under who are NOT receiving current care at the dental school with a dental emergency can call our Pediatrics Clinic at (414) 288-7273 during normal business hours for additional information.

Payment Options

We accept cash, Visa, Discover, American Express and Mastercard for walk-in emergencies, payable before being seen. We accept Wisconsin Medicaid (Title 19, Children’s Community Health Plan and Molina). (See ForwardHealth providers list on our payment page.)

We do not accept checks. 

What to Expect

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

You must be able to give written consent for yourself, or a parent or legal guardian must accompany and stay with you for this emergency visit.
