FAQs

Here are some frequently asked questions. If you don’t see the answer to the question you have, please feel free to give us a call or contact us.

Do emergency dentist visits cost more after hours?

Not at Emergency Dental Care USA. Our offices have the same competitive rates every day. Unlike some family practices or so-called “emergency dentists”, we do not have any additional fees or surcharges to be seen on weekends, evenings or even holidays.

What should I do if I loose/break/chip a tooth?

The enamel that covers your teeth is the hardest part of your body. Despite their strength, your teeth may fracture or fall out during extreme circumstances. Tooth decay increases the chances of broken and chipped teeth.

If you have a chipped, fractured or broken tooth, you may or may not be experiencing discomfort. Even if pain is not present, it is important to see a dentist right away. The internal and delicate areas of the tooth may now be exposed to the bacteria in the mouth. Left unprotected, this could quickly lead to new or increased decay, and ultimately result in loss of tooth or root canal therapy.

If your tooth is knocked out, get the tooth and seek emergency dental care. Teeth can often be implanted after being knocked out; however, time is critical. A permanent tooth that’s been knocked out has the best chance of being re-implanted within 30 minutes of the incident. If you cannot see an emergency dentist, you should visit the ER.

Are you a DSHS Provider

We are not a DSHS provider. We do offer several payment options including credit cards, CareCredit® financing, and you may qualify for in-house financing. You can learn more on our Payments page.

Do you have any coupons or discounts?

No, we do not currently offer any coupons or discounts at the Lynnwood office location.

Are you open holidays?

If you have a dental emergency on a holiday, Lynnwood Emergency Dental Care is one of the few dentists in Washington to offer holiday appointments. Our Lynnwood, WA office often has special holiday hours, so please call to check hours and appointment availability before arriving.

What type of insurance do you accept?

While we don’t contract with any insurance providers, we are able to accept most dental insurance on an indemnity basis. We will check with your insurance company to estimate your out-of-pocket cost, and then help get the claim started for you.

Because we accept dental insurance on an indemnity basis, you will sometimes need to pay for your services before we can begin any dental work. We accept cash, credit or one of our other financing options.

Is it expensive to see an emergency dentist?

At Lynnwood Emergency Dental Care, the cost of exams, x-rays and treatment are very competitive. We are often cheaper than non-emergency dentists. Our pricing is based off the average cost of dental care in the area. This gives our patients access to high-quality dentistry and competitive pricing with unmatched convenience.

Where is the Lynnwood office located?

Our office is located just SE of the Alderwood Mall. It is easily accessible from I-5, I-405, and the Pacific Highway.
