Same Day Appointment Clinic for Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery
The outpatient same day clinic provides basic emergency treatment of dental infections, extractions, treatment of traumatic injuries and minor pathologic conditions. In addition, the clinic provides diagnostic services for more complicated conditions. We DO NOT provide general dental care (fillings, caps, root canals, cleanings, or dentures) in our clinic.

Our same day appointment clinic is located at:
Boston Medical Center
Yawkey Ambulatory Care Center, 5th floor
850 Harrison Avenue
Boston, MA 02118
Call: 617.414.ACHE (2243)
The clinic operates on a same day appointment basis Monday, through Friday.
The clinic treats a high volume of patients each day. The number of patients seen is limited, and the clinic operates on a first come – first served basis. Patients may start calling 617-414-ACHE (2243) at 7 am. Patients’ calls will be answered in the order received and given an appointment time to be seen on that same day. Calls will be answered until appointment slots have been filled. If a patient is unsuccessful one day, patients may try again another day.
It is important for female patients to let the staff know if they are pregnant.
In order to serve you better the following medical information is required:
- A list of all current medications you are taking
- A list of all allergies
- A list of all medical conditions
- If you are being referred by another doctor or clinic you will need to provide us with the written referral letter
It is the patient’s responsibility to provide this information. If a patient cannot provide the required information, his or her treatment may be limited or they may have to return at a later date.
NO minors or children will be seen without a parent or documented legal guardian present.
In most cases we will be able to definitively treat you during your first visit. There are certain cases where we may be able to treat you with only medications.
Cases in which we may not be able to definitively treat you would include:
- Complicated medical conditions
- Incomplete medical history
- Incomplete referral
24/7 on-call coverage is available on-site. Existing patients should call 617.638.8000 and ask for the oral and maxillofacial surgery on-call resident to be paged.
