WALK IN DENTAL VISIT

Walk In Visits are for whatever donation you can help us with.  Thank you.

A Walk In Dental Visit allows for 1 (ONE) extraction (does not include wisdom teeth) OR 1 (ONE) filling.

Most Friday mornings from 9 - noon, we have a

dentist available for walk in visits.

WE DO NOT DO ANY ELECTIVE DENTAL SERVICES ON WALK-IN VISITS.

BUT PLEASE watch our "Lift Up Springfield" Facebook page for weekly postings that confirm that there will be a WALK IN dentist that week.

MENTAL HEALTH PEER SPECIALIST - Burrell Mental Health

We are able to help you get established with professional mental health services:  Medications, counseling, follow up after release, case management.  Available every Friday from 11 - 3 by appointment or walk in.  We strongly recommend an appointment to insure being seen.  We simply ask for a donation for these visits. 


APPOINTMENTS FOR ANY DENTAL SERVICE
ELECTIVE DENTAL SERVICES - BY APPOINTMENT ONLY*

The donation requirements are listed next to each procedure.  This helps us cover a tiny bit of our cost.  As you know, many of these elective procedures typically cost $1500 and up at most dentist offices. 

(See Root Canals, Temporary Crowns, Cosmetic BELOW under New Policies)

 

  • 1 Filling:   $50   ($25 for each additional filling during the SAME appointment, up to a total of 4).  NOTE:  If a filling becomes complicated and the allotted time for your appointment is used for that complication, all remaining fillings will require a NEW appointment, which will be $50 for the first tooth and $25 for each additional.
  • 1 Extraction (not wisdom tooth): $50 ($25 for each additional extraction during the SAME appointment). NOTE: If an extraction becomes complicated and the allotted time for your appointment is used, all remaining extractions will require a NEW appointment, which will be
    $50 for the first tooth plus $25 for each additional.
  • Ultrasonic Cleaning and Polishing:  $50
  • X-Rays and Evaluation of needs:  $50
  • Wisdom Tooth:  $75 per tooth REGARDLESS of whether we are able to remove the wisdom tooth or not.   We do NOT do impacted wisdom teeth, this requires an oral surgeon  NOTE:  It is not always possible to tell if a wisdom tooth is impacted or if it will be too complicated to remove, many times this is only found during the procedure.  If the wisdom tooth is complicated, we will either be able to schedule you with an oral surgeon WHEN one volunteers OR we can refer you to an oral surgeon in the community for general anesthetic.  See Oral Surgery fee below.
  • Oral Surgery for Impacted or Complicated Wisdom Teeth or Complicated Extractions:  $75  Per tooth whether we are able to remove it or not and have to refer you to another dentist. The cost of any previous unsuccessful attempts to remove the tooth are not eligible to be applied toward this fee.  If you fee you may have a complicated extraction, we suggest that you request this option FIRST Understand that if the impactions are severe, we will not be able to remove them and will have to refer you to an oral surgeon that is able to provide oral surgery under general anesthesia. 
  • Denture Evaluation, Denture Realignment, Denture Repair:  $50.
    Once the work needed on your dentures/partials is evaluated, we will give you a quote for the cost of the alignment/repair.  The $50 appiontment fee will be applied toward the repair work.

SPRINGFIELD

WALK IN Information:  Patients always line up early on Walk In Days.  Walk In's are first come - first serve basis.  We will see as many patients as we can - we usually get to the first 6 - 8 in the line, BUT there is NO GUARANTEE that you will be seen that day.  All of our services are based on the dentist that volunteer, the services each prefers to do and the hours they are kind enough to donate. 

If you do not want to do a walk in or do not want to stand in line or have multiple needs for fillings or extractions,  we strongly recomment making an

appointment.

DENTURES and PARTIAL INFO:  Please see the "Denture Services"  page on this website.

VERY IMPORTANT APPOINTMENT INFORMATION ABOUT OUR CLINIC and YOUR APPOINTMENT:  Please note, we try very hard to stay as close to planned appointment times as possible, but we are unable to predict when we will run into a complicated case which may take much longer than planned - sometimes 1 to 2 hours.  We can not foresee this and we cannot stop in the middle of a procedure just because it is complicated.  We thank you in advance for your understanding and patience in allowing us to care for the complication. Please remember that we are a MISSON CLINIC, we do not operate like a regular clinic that is able to set and keep exact appointments, nor can we guarantee that a provider won't cancel at the last minute due to sickness or an obligation to their own patient's.  Everyone at Lift Up Springfield is a volunteer.  So we are totally dependent upon our volunteers to be able to provide your service.  It is rare, but it can happen that we are unable to reach you to let you know we would be unable to see you that day due to a cancellation of a provider. So it is critical that you provide a correct phone contact for us to reach you so that we can save you a trip should a provider cancel at the last minute.  You must also remember that many of our patients have not seen a doctor or dentist in over 10 years!  We expect complications.  Know that you will receive the same good care if this would happen to you.  If you need to leave, you will not be penalized and will be able to reschedule your appointment.

If you do a "Walk In" visit: please know that there is never a GUARANTEE that we can see you.  It is all based on if we have

cancellations or a no show and are able to work you in.  If all appointments show up, the chances of us being able to work you in are extremely low.  So please know in advance, it is possible that you could wait all day and not be seen.

To Make An Appointment or if you have a question  (recommended over walk-in: Please visit our "Make Appointment" Page

WALK IN LINE CONDUCT

We ask that all Walk In patients be considerate and respectful to others in line.  In the winter months or

bad weather: Each person can establish their place in line and then wait inside their car (stay warm or get out of the rain).  As long as this person IS PRESENT, IN THEIR CAR, ON THE PROPERTY, they will retain their place in line.  If they leave for any reason, they lose their place in line.

If someone is disrespectful, causes issues or tries to cut into line - WE WILL NOT SEE THAT PERSON IN OUR CLINIC.

ELIGIBILITY:  Our dental services and these "at cost" donation prices are for those that are in households UNDER* the national poverty level.  If you and/or your household is OVER the national poverty level, we will still see you, but we will give you a separate quote for the dental services you need.    *We reserve the right to request proof of income:  last 2 paystubs or househould income tax returns.
