Got a cracked tooth. Have no insurance. Have no money until this Friday. Suggestions will be great!

  • Northside Dental They are about a block past ridge on Clark West side of the street.

  • Try Raymond Hatland on Pratt and California. He has helped us out with a dental emergency.

    Malcolm X College downtown has a dental clinic

    I'm just concerned that without an established relationship with a dentist, you might encounter difficulty if you're unable to pay. Do you have a credit card - or know someone who'd be willing charge the cost on their card and let you pay them back Friday?

    try a dental school

  • Nan

    Dental schools are not a particularly good resource for an emergency, especially if you're not already enrolled as a patient.

    The following is a quote from a review of the UIC Dental Care Center.

    “I had an emergency issue with my crown and this was my first time going to a student dentist. I’m really impressed with the level of professionalism from the students and the instructors, and how well they explain everything. I will highly recommend UIC to others.”

    That doesn't mean this person wasn't previously enrolled - it may just mean it was the first time they were seen. Dental school dental clinics can be difficult to get appointments with even if you've already been accepted as a patient, but it' certainly worth a try.

  • UIC Dental can be very hard to get into and almost impossible to do so quickly (unless things have changed). I used to go there.

    Dr. Baker at Montrose Tooth Fairy 1929 W Montrose is where I go now and she's the best dentist I've ever had. She does great work, has the most reasonable rates, will not suggest unnecessary work. I'm sure she would be able to work something out with you. She used to do pro bono services for indigenous people in South American countries and for the Chicago homeless.
