Insurance Options for Emergency Dentist in Phoenix

All of the Phoenix Emergency Dentists featured here accept most types of dental insurance. You will have the best luck if you have an employer provided dental plan and if you have a PPO insurance plan. Generally, most insurance plans will offer some coverage for dental emergencies, but to be sure, you should call the dental office directly and they can let you know whether they accept your plan or not.

Emergency Dentists that Accept the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS) Plan

Most Emergency Dentists in the Phoenix area do not accept the Arizona Medicaid Plan known as AHCCCS (pronounced “Access”); however, the Tempe Emergency Dentist DOES accept these plans. If you are an AHCCCS patient with a dental emergency, call them as soon as possible as their appointments fill up fast. It is important to note that while most Emergency Dentists do not accept AHCCCS, most do work with third party financing companies that will allow you to have a payment plan or put a deposit down towards your dental treatment.

AHCCCS is not a plan in itself, but it is a state program that certain plans form a part of. The plans themselves are managed by private companies, and it is important to note that they vary by location in the state. In the case of Phoenix, patients must use plans that are available and assigned to Maricopa county. The full list of available plans, according to the AHCCCS office is:

  • Arizona Complete Health – Complete Care Plan (formerly Health Net Access)
  • Banner-University Family Care
  • Molina Complete Care
  • Mercy Care
  • Health Choice Arizona
  • UnitedHealthcare Community Plan
  • American Indian Health Program

Emergency Dentists with Payment Plans in Phoenix

You may find yourself in a situation where you are unable to pay for the dental procedure you need out of pocket, but really need to get the treatment done. In this case, your best bet is to check your financing options with third party financing companies that specialize in providing payment plans for dental care. The most prominent of these companies is CareCredit, but you can also call your dental office and ask them what payment plan companies they work with.

Walk In Dentists in Phoenix

Most Phoenix Emergency Dentists do not operate on a walk in basis, and require an appointment before you can be seen. It is important to be aware of this and call ahead to obtain an appointment prior to driving to your selected dentist. This is the case because, unlike Urgent Cares, many Emergency Dentists are also general dentists who run a regular practice, and their schedule can become full to the point where they can no longer take more emergency patients. Some dentists, like the Scottsdale Emergency Dentist, have more flexibility in their schedule and do their best to fit you in no matter the time.

Low Cost Tooth Extraction in Phoenix

The majority of dental emergencies involve some form of tooth extraction. This is unfortunate, as teeth can often be saved if issues are treated early, but often years of neglect build up, resulting in a tooth damage beyond repair. In these cases, a patient’s best option is to get their tooth extracted. The cost of a tooth extraction will vary by office, but generally, for a standard extraction of a tooth that is not impacted can range from $200-$500. All dentists, even Emergency Dentists, will require an exam and x-rays before proceeding with the extraction, and often they will credit the cost of the exam to the total cost of the extraction. If you already have a very recent x-ray, you can bring that to your Emergency Dental visit and they may not need to take another x-ray. Many offices offer same-day treatment, which means that they will do the exam and proceed with the extraction that same day if they are able to. Note that this can not be guaranteed, as if the dentist finds complications when they perform the exam, then they may simply not be able to carry the extraction out there on the spot. In these instances, you can expect to be given pain medication to manage the pain while you come back for your extraction visit.
