As a service to our patients of record and the local community, Penn Dental Medicine maintains an ongoing emergency dental care service.

    Please call 215-898-8965. Emergency treatment appointments are available throughout the day. The fee for emergency exams is $45, and the fee for x-rays may range from $20 – $100. Additional fees apply for other treatment.

  • After hours, weekend and school holidays

    In case of dental emergencies (after hours, on weekends, and on holidays) involving severe pain, swelling, and/or bleeding, please call 215-898-8965; directions are given to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania (HUP) or your nearest hospital. Please be advised that the hospital emergency room will not replace or repair lost fillings, crowns, or other dental appliances. A hospital fee for emergency visits will be applied. This fee is the patient’s responsibility. Patients of record may qualify for reimbursement of this fee.
