Find An Emergency Dentist in PennsylvaniaOur dental referral specialist can help you locate an emergency dentist in Pennsylvania in less than 3 minutes.
Pennsylvania has over 7,600 dentists living and working in the state, and most of them live in the two biggest cities – Philadelphia and Pittsburgh1. Even though there are many dentists in Pennsylvania, people don’t regularly visit them. Over 33% of people in Pennsylvania haven’t been to the dentist in over a year, according to a research done by McKinsey & Company2. If you don’t go to the dentist every six months for a checkup and a cleaning, the chances are very high you will develop dental problems. The food and drinks we consume every day are filled with sugars and acids, which damage our teeth, and no amount of brushing and flossing our teeth can completely protect them. Discovering your dental problem in its early stages can save you from undergoing an extensive and costly procedure later on, when the tooth decay has already reached the pulp, or an infection has formed.
The average annual dental cost in Pennsylvania is around $316, but can be lower if you visit the dentist twice a year and save on expensive procedures3. Most insurance plans have free checkups and cleanings twice a year included with the plan. Those can significantly lower your cost if you prevent a serious dental problem from forming. Out of all the people that don’t regularly go to the dentist, 21% of them don’t go because of inconvenient location or time, while 14% have trouble locating a dentist, according to the American Dental Association4.

Tourists Seeking an Emergency Dentist in Pennsylvania
Whether you’re in Pennsylvania taking photos of the Liberty Bell, eating chocolate at Hersheypark, or at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh watching a Steelers game, you can call us if you’re experiencing a dental emergency. From a chipped tooth to a lost crown, contact us so we can schedule an appointment for you with an emergency dentist near 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 Pennsylvania. 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!
