Emergency Dental Services

Detroit Mercy 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.

New Patients

If you have a dental emergency and are not a regular patient at our clinics, you can use our walk-in emergency service.

Please be aware that space is limited and our walk-in emergency service is available on a first-come, first-serve basis during dental clinic hours. Clinics are closed for major holidays and at other times throughout the year for conferences, meetings and academic related events and breaks.

Our main doors open at 7:30 a.m. The Emergency Clinic begins seeing patients at 9 a.m.

NOTE: You are limited to 2 emergency visits without becoming a regular patient; exceptions may be made on a case-by-case basis.

    • Personal checks are not accepted
  • We accept most major dental insurance plans and Medicaid.  You are responsible for the cost of treatment not covered under your dental insurance.
  • A fee of $80, applied towards the cost of treatment, must be paid prior to treatment
