Find An Emergency Dentist in IllinoisOur dental referral specialist can help you locate an emergency dentist in Illinois in less than 3 minutes.
Over 8,300 dentists live and work in Illinois, with most of them in and around the Chicago area, according to KFF1. It is relatively easy to locate a nearby dentist in Illinois, especially with websites like Yelp, which give you the address, phone number and reviews of dentist offices. However, if you are looking to be matched with a dental office that specializes in the treatment you are looking for, accepts your insurance or payment type, and has appointments available today, we are your go-to source! A study performed by McKinsey & Company shows that approximately 36% of adults in Illinois haven’t seen the dentist in the last year2. That number is very high and potentially very expensive considering that people who don’t go to the dentist every six months for a checkup and cleaning are more likely to develop a dental emergency. These dental emergencies include chipped and fractured teeth, lost or broken crowns, infections as well as other complex procedures. Preventive care will protect your teeth and gums, and will save you money as well, because extensive procedures to treat your dental problems are much more costly than regularly visiting the dentist.
Out of the 36% of people in Illinois that haven’t been to the dentist, 19% said that they had trouble finding a dentist, while 25% said that they found the time or location inconvenient, according to the American Dental Association3. If you’re having trouble locating a dentist near you, or you can’t seem to find the time, try giving us a call. Our lines are open 24/7, meaning you can call us anytime you want and our dental referral specialists will locate an emergency dentist near you. Feel free to call us in the middle of the night as well, because through our cooperation with dentist offices in Illinois we have access to their appointment books, and we can schedule you an appointment for the first thing in the morning.

Help Finding an Emergency Dentist in IllinoisCall us to get help with locating an emergency dentist near you.
KFF claims that the average dental cost per person in Illinois is $3575. No matter how much dental care cost, you should always take care of your teeth, which goes beyond brushing and flossing them regularly. Biannual visits to the dentist for a checkup and cleaning can lower the dental cost for you because discovering a problem early can stop it from permanently damaging your teeth to the point where you may require extensive dental work. Remember, dental problems do not solve themselves, they only become worse over time! If you do happen to experience a dental emergency, give us a call to schedule an immediate appointment with an emergency dentist near you.
Tourists Seeking an Emergency Dentist in Illinois
Tourists are most commonly found in Chicago and around Lake Michigan in Illinois. If you’re a tourist in Illinois and you’re in need of an emergency dentist, give us a call. We can locate a dentist near you and schedule an emergency appointment for you.
As a tourist, your dental options are quite broad if you have a PPO or HMO dental insurance plan. With a PPO plan, you can go to any dentist you like while visiting Illinois. While any dentist you go to will allow you to get some level of reimbursement from your PPO insurance plan, selecting an in-network dentist will ensure that you pay the least amount of money possible out of your own pocket. Our dental referral specialists can make sure to provide you with the location of a nearby in-network dentist in order to keep costs low while you are traveling. HMO plans allow you to only go to dentists who are a part of the HMO network, and therefore you will not receive any reimbursement from your insurance company if you choose to go to an out of network dentist. Since it is especially important for HMO patients to go to dentists in their network, our dental referral specialists have been trained to find you the closest in-network HMO dentist if you require one. Don't spend the countless hours trying to find an emergency dentist while you are on vacation should the need arise. Call us and we will get you an appointment today in under 3 minutes for FREE!
