Walk-In Clinic for Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
The outpatient walk-in clinic provides basic emergency treatment of dental infections, extractions, treatment of traumatic injuries and minor pathologic conditions. In addition, the clinic provides diagnostic services for more complicated conditions. We DO NOT provide general dental care (fillings, caps, root canals, or dentures) in our clinic.
Our walk-in clinic is located at:
Boston Medical Center
The clinic operates on a walk in basis Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.
The clinic treats a high volume of patients each day. The number of patients seen is limited, and the clinic operates on a first come – first served basis. Patients generally start arriving at 6:00 AM and place their name on a list. The patients will be registered then called and interviewed. Most patients will have an X-ray taken. It is important for female patients to let the staff know if they are pregnant. The patients will then return to the waiting room and wait to be called for diagnosis and treatment.
In order to serve you better the following medical information is required:
It is the patient’s responsibility to provide this information. If a patient cannot provide the required information, his or her treatment may be limited or they may have to return at a later date.
NO minors or children will be seen without a parent or documented legal guardian present.
In most cases we will be able to definitively treat you during your first visit. There are certain cases where we may be able to treat you with only medications.
Cases in which we may not be able to definitively treat you would include:
24/7 on-call coverage is available on-site. Existing patients should call 617.638.8000 and ask for the oral and maxillofacial surgery on-call resident to be paged.
Parking is available at 710 Albany Street Parking Garage. Valet parking is available in front of the Menino Pavilion (closest to Yawkey 5 practice location) at 840 Harrison Avenue.
