Emergency Services

Emergencies may include, but are not limited to, conditions in which pain, swelling, or bleeding exists. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, contact your student doctor immediately. When possible, emergencies should be managed by your student doctor in consultation with attending doctors. To page your student doctor, call (215) 707-2938.

If you have a dental emergency and are unable to reach your student doctor or have not yet been assigned, you may report to the Emergency Services Clinic for treatment. The Emergency Services Clinic is located on the first floor of the dental school clinics and is open between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding weekends and school closings. Patients may register after 7:30 a.m. Fees for emergency screening and diagnosis service vary depending on the type and number of radiographs (x-rays) needed. Emergency treatment, generally rendered on the same day depending on the number of patients presenting, will require an additional fee. Payments are expected at the time of service.

In the event of emergencies or complications after 4:30 p.m. on weekdays, weekends or holidays, report to the Temple University Hospital Emergency Room, 3401 N. Broad Street, or call (215) 707-4545 and ask for the Oral Surgery resident on call. Hospital fees will be charged.
