Emergency Care

Patients who are being treated at the SDM facilities for comprehensive care are provided 24-hour emergency care through the UNLV School of Dental Medicine. Please contact your regular appointment number for emergencies which occur during scheduled working hours: Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.–5 p.m. For emergencies after hours, on weekends, during breaks or holidays, call the main UNLV School of Dental Medicine phone number at 702-774-2400 and you will be given further directions. Patients seen in continuing education seminars should follow this same procedure. Patients of record with the General Practice Residency program at UNLV SDM should contact 702-671-5175 for further instructions.

Patients who are not regular clinic patients but are experiencing dental pain, swelling, or bleeding may receive limited treatment during scheduled working hours for their emergency by contacting the Shadow Lane SDM location at 702-774-2457 or 702-774-2458. If further treatment is necessary after the emergency visit, the patient may obtain a screening appointment as previously discussed, or may be directed to seek care in the private sector. The UNLV School of Dental Medicine is not obligated to provide continued treatment after rendering emergency care.

Patients of record with the Faculty Dental Practice with after hour emergencies should contact 702-774-8000 and you will be given further instructions.
