Important COVID-19 updates:
As some states are relaxing their dental-procedure restrictions in some or all of their counties, the ADA recommends referring to applicable State guidelines to determine the dental care available for your area.
If you’re experiencing a dental emergency, you should:
- Contact your dentist
- Call United Concordia’s dental emergency line at 1-800-858-0051*
* This line is to be used for dental emergencies only. It’s available from 6 p.m. Sunday to 10 p.m. Friday, Eastern Time.
Emergency dental care includes any treatment necessary to relieve pain, treat infection, or control bleeding. For details about dental emergencies, click here. More information on dental emergencies, including emergency teledentistry as an option, is available in the TDP Health Matters newsletter.
You may also seek care for a dental emergency from your closest emergency room. The healthcare system may be overwhelmed with medical patients at this time. We recommend that you first contact your dentist and/or United Concordia for assistance for dental emergencies.
