Our Emergency Clinic is Now Welcoming Walk- in Appointments for Patients That are Experiencing Pain
If you are in pain arrive at the dental school at 7:30 am for morning session or 11:30 am for afternoon session. Walk-ins are first come first serve and there are no guarantees of being seen. Patients will need to be sure they have a valid ID to be seen. If the address on your ID is not correct, you will need to present a utility bill within the last 30 days to verify the address. The fees for emergency will be $52 (assessment fee) plus the cost of treatment that is rendered. We ask that no extra people are in the building other than the patient unless you have a legal guardian, interpreter or caregiver. If you would prefer scheduling an emergency appointment instead of using a walk-in appointment, please call (816) 235 2100 and chose the option for emergency clinic.
For emergency dental services:
Existing patients with student doctor(s), contact student doctor(s) directly.
Existing Faculty Practice patients, call (816) 235-2121.
