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 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.
