Dentistry - Urgent Care Clinic

The safety of patients is our utmost concern and priority during this difficult time. In an effort to support the Kentucky Board of Dentistry's recommendation on rescheduling elective dental care due to current public health concerns, UK Dentistry will be working to reschedule many patient appointments. UK Dentistry will continue to serve patients with urgent dental care needs at select clinics. If you are a UK Dentistry patient or are experiencing a dental emergency, please call your dental clinic directly or call 859-323-DENT (3368) for information. 

The Urgent Care Clinic (UCC) is a walk-in clinic for patients needing immediate care due to dental pain or swelling. Clinic registration is open 7:30-9:30 a.m., Monday through Friday (closed on holidays and other select dates). The clinic offers services to patients 14 years of age and older. Patients are seen on a first-come, first-served basis and may experience wait times. A $157 deposit is due upon registration, and patients are billed for any balance over their deposit.
