We are Emergency Dentists USA, and our mission is to provide our customers with the best possible dental care at their exact moment of need.
As a team and as individuals, we know how painful tooth pain can be. We have all had situations where we needed emergency care that didn’t seem like it was available. And we have made it our personal goal to make sure that you, reader, are never in that same position.
We are working to achieve this mission in two ways. The first: our toll-free helpline at 1 (888) 420-6826. This number will always be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year and staffed with highly-trained and courteous referral professionals who will put you in touch with a dentist who can give you the best possible personalized care for you at the soonest available appointment. Through this number, we have been matching patients with dentists for more than 5 years.
Our second focus is our Dental Blog. We believe that well-informed patients are patients who will be better equipped to find the care that they need. Through our blog, we want to educate our readers about the process of going to an emergency dentist, the symptoms they might be experiencing, and what they can do at home to take great care of their teeth.
Dr. Maxine Feinberg, President of the American Dental Association, said in a 2015 statement that “Despite all the advances in our ability to prevent, detect and treat dental diseases, too many Americans – for a variety of reasons – are not enjoying the best possible oral health.” Through our programs of education and professional referral services, we promise to do everything in our power to change that assessment.
Our Core Values
Our loyalty will always be to the patient, not the profits.
We will provide our patients with excellent customer service that is available at any time of the day or night, even on weekends and holidays.
We will staff our helpline with US-based experienced call representatives who will understand our patients’ symptoms and know how to set up an appointment.
We will continue to help provide care to those with and without insurance, to those who do and do not need payment plans, because everyone deserves to live a healthy pain-free life.
We will continue to only work with and hire intelligent professionals who are experts in their field.
We will continue to provide only factual, evidence-based information on our website and Dental Blog.
We know that we can only help our customers if they trust us and believe in what we do, and we will seek to always be accountable for our actions, to own up to any mistake we make, and to behave with honesty and integrity.
We will uphold these values as individuals and as a team.

Emergency Dentists USA was founded 5 years ago by Michael Plambeck, an entrepreneur and dental marketing expert from the heartland of Lincoln, Nebraska.
As a professional with decades in content marketing and web development, Mike knew that he could provide a better resource for those in need of emergency dentistry than just searching through the phone book or Google.
Mike understands that we need to provide easy-to-understand literature for patients, but he has also spent years working with dentists and patients to make sure that the latter is provided with accurate, factual information about their care as well.
He has also helped us partner with some of the best dental practitioners in the business so that we can make sure that patients are receiving the highest quality dental health services possible.
Michael reminds us all to be passionate and to always put the customer first in everything that we do. While this might just be a job for our team, it could be the difference between keeping and losing teeth for our patients.
