To set up an appointment, call the Dental Center at (217) 403-5477. While new patient appointments may be full for weeks out, appointments regularly open up for those who are available for same day, next day, or walk in and wait appointments.
The first appointment will be a New Patient Exam, at which the doctor will take x-rays and diagnose any needed treatment. A second appointment will then be scheduled to begin your treatment plan. Typically our dentist will do extractions first, with future appointments for cleanings and finally filling cavities. Care that is beyond the scope of our clinic may be referred to an outside provider.
Emergency appointments can be scheduled promptly. However, during these appointments the dentist will only focus on the area of severe pain.
