Most regular appointments are scheduled days or weeks in advance. If you encounter a dental emergency, however, a CDS doctor can usually see you the same day you call. Please call as early in the day as possible. In most emergency situations, the doctor will focus on relieving your discomfort on a temporary basis, explain your condition and then schedule any necessary follow-up treatment.
For after-hour emergencies, you can reach an on-call doctor by calling Cincinnati Dental Services at the regular number. A recording will advise you how to contact the doctor, and the doctor will then return your call as soon as possible. Because of the high level of service involved, 24-hour emergency services are reserved for patients who have been previously seen at a CDS office.
