Years ago, I thought about the idea of an unconventional dental office. A dental office geared truly toward the needs of the patient, not the convenience of the doctor. In 2007, after retiring from a conventional practice of dentistry in Florence, Kentucky, I opened Urgent Dental Care of the Mid-south™, a dental office where the patient decides when they can come to the office because we are truly a walk-in office. Sure, you can make an appointment if you want, but suppose you found out you are free today between 3 and 4 o’clock. Just walk in.

Our office hours are based on your schedule. We are open seven days a week, 365 days a year! At Urgent Dental Care, we know you have to work and it’s important to you to schedule your time outside of working hours. So we are there for you.

In November 2008, we opened our second Urgent Dental Care in Louisville, Kentucky. We are a full-service dental practice. If you require any routine dental service, cleanings, fillings, root canal therapy, crowns, bridgework, dentures or extractions, we are here to service you.

Most days we have two doctors on staff, so your wait time can be as minimal as possible. If it suits you better, call ahead and see how busy we are.

Our third Urgent Dental Care, located in West Chester, Ohio opened in 2009. All offices are welcoming new patients all the time!

No one is more caring than our doctors at Urgent Dental Care!
