There may be an emergency treatment fee for after hours office visits that varies greatly depending on the treatment needed. In an emergency situation, the fee may seem a small price to pay for immediate relief!
If you have a dental insurance policy in place, it will often help with the cost of the emergency fee as well as with the treatment itself.
