Emergency Dental Care
The UConn School of Dental Medicine offers the largest emergency dental service in Connecticut. For patients 16 and older, emergency care is available without appointment during regular clinic hours, in the UConn School of Dental Medicine Emergency Dental Clinic.
If emergency dental care is required after hours, including evenings, weekends, and holidays, patients may go to the UConn John Dempsey Hospital Emergency Department (ED). If the ED provider’s evaluation determines the need, the on-call dentist affiliated with the School of Dental Medicine will be contacted. Patients seen in the ED will receive bills from the hospital and the dental provider separately.
