Clinics are open to walk-ins with emergency dental concerns. First-come, first served. These locations are on a bus loop and offer fee-based parking nearby.

Mondays & Fridays tend to be busiest days. To avoid long wait times, we  encourage you to call 585-275-5051 to determine the best time that day.
