Urgent Care Clinic

Location: Dental Science Building, 770 Rose Street, Lexington

The Urgent Care Clinic (UCC) is a walk-in clinic for patients, 14 years of age and older, needing immediate care due to dental pain and swelling. Clinic registration is open 7:45-10:30 am, Monday through Friday (closed on holidays and other dates-see below). Patients are seen on a first come, first served basis and may experience wait times. Services are only available for a select number of patients each day. 
Patients are evaluated by expert UK dentists, and treated by dental students. If a patient's needs are too great or do not meet the educational needs of dental students, they may be referred to another UK dental clinic. 
Payment Details
A $129 evaluation fee, which includes an examination and X-ray, is due upon registration. An additional payment will be required at time of service depending on treatment provided and any insurance benefits.  

UK Dentistry accepts check, money order, VISA, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express.
