Emergency dental care close to me as I leave Chicago for emergency surgery
Emergency dental service near me is closing to all but a few hundred people, in response to a new state law mandating emergency care in emergencies.
The emergency dental services are closing from 5 p.m. until 7 a.m., and will not reopen until 7:30 a..m.: the time doctors, nurses and dentists are supposed to get to patients who are sick or in crisis.
The state Department of Public Health said it will notify all residents by text message and email about the closure.
In a statement, the department said it has been in constant communication with the state Department, and that they are monitoring all the details, including the specific time the service will be closed.
The department said that people who need to go to the emergency dental clinic should call its Emergency Dental Clinic at 217-373-6100.
If you cannot visit, the DPH can provide you with an emergency number.
