  • An injury to oral soft tissue (including tongue, gums or lips)
  • A lost restoration, like a filling or a crown
  • A bump or "pimple-like" lesion on your gums, which can be indicative of a dental abscess
  • A cracked or fractured tooth

That's why Gallery Park Dental offers a more flexible schedule for our patients' convenience. We know our patients lead busy lives and they can't just stop everything for a dental visit.

Early Morning and Evening Dental Appointments

We have a variety of early morning and after-hours evening appointments available each week as well as weekend appointments on Saturdays. We want to work with patients to make visiting the dentist as convenient as possible, so please let us know what we can do to better accommodate your busy schedule.

Same-Day Emergency Appointments in 60026

We also offer same-day appointments for emergency dental treatment, and will attempt to accommodate emergency patients after-hours on the same day. For patients with a dental emergency, please make sure to notify the office staff when you call so we can fit you in as soon as possible. 

If you need a specific appointment or a block of appointments to bring your entire family in a single visit, let us know. We will work with you to accommodate your schedule whenever we can.
