Is Emergency Dental Care Expensive?

One of the first concerns you might have when facing a dental emergency is how much it’s going to cost you to seek emergency dental treatment. If you have dental health insurance, most dental emergencies are covered because the treatment you seek is medically necessary.

We offer most major dental insurance plans and provide financing options for those whose treatment is not covered or is covered only in part.

We also accept patients into our DentRite® discount plan that provides substantial savings for many common dental procedures.
