If you have a dental emergency in Elmwood IL, Associates in Dentistry is here to help. While our existing patients receive top priority, we will do our best to accommodate anyone in an emergency. With our nine dentists in five locations and more than 40 professional and support staff, we’re the emergency dentist Elmwood IL turns to.
This is a true dental emergency, and there’s little time to save the tooth. If you or someone near you loses a tooth in an accident, call us immediately at 309-690-4500. In the meantime, submerge the lost tooth in milk to help keep it alive until you can get to us. Milk contains sugars and protein. Be careful: Do not touch the tooth’s roots with your fingers – only touch the crown.
Here are some examples of things we would consider dental emergencies:
If a dental emergency happens after our regular office hours, you may either call your dentist at home or go straight to the emergency room.
It’s best to have a regular dentist who is already familiar with your dental history when an emergency occurs. The best time to start looking for a dentist is before an emergency occurs. Call us!
We know that in some cases, things like embarrassment or fear may prevent people from making an appointment, and we understand. If you have not seen a dentist recently, you may require treatment. Remember, dental issues don’t get better on their own. So the sooner you call us, the sooner we can provide good dental care.
Associates in Dentistry offers all the dental services you would expect and more, including:
We take more than 150 different insurance plans, so there’s a good chance that we will accept yours. In addition, we do care for patients without any dental insurance. All patients are charged the same fees for the same procedures, regardless of what, if any, insurance they have. If you require extensive dental procedures, we always do our best to estimate the expected final cost and the amount we expect your insurance to cover. Ultimately, however, you will be responsible for the cost of your treatments. We charge an 18 percent per year service charge on any balance remaining after 30 days. We do not accept the Illinois Public Aid card or Medicaid.
We’ve made paying your bill as convenient as possible with a new online payment option.
Don’t wait until you have a dental emergency. The time to get started with dental care is now. Whether you need an emergency dentist in Elmwood IL, or are ready to resume regular dental care, give Associates In Dentistry a call today at 309-690-4500.
