Emergency care

We offer comprehensive emergency care for current patients and limited walk-in service for unregistered patients.

If you have a dental emergency, call VCU Dental Care at (804) 828-9190 and choose option No. 2.

If you are a current patient who needs treatment after hours, on weekends or on holidays, call (804) 828-0951, identify yourself as a current patient and ask for the doctor on call.

Urgent Care Clinic

The Urgent Care Clinic is designed for patients who are in pain and who wish to keep their teeth as well as new patients who do not want comprehensive care but have a particular dental issue.

The Urgent Care Clinic is triage in nature, so we will take care of your immediate dental needs and refer you the appropriate department for ongoing needs.

The services include, but are not limited to:

  • Non-extraction emergency care
  • X-rays
  • Limited exams
  • Diagnosis
  • Proper referral

The Urgent Care Clinic provides services by appointment and walk-ins are welcomed.  We have morning and afternoon appointments available Monday to Thursday as well as Friday mornings.
