At the Evanston Hospital Dental Clinic, our priority is the health of our patients, our team, and our community. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the physical layout of our clinic and staffing challenges, we have decreased the availability of elective dental appointments. As always, your safety and the safety of our team are the priority. We are actively working to identify ways to expand clinic capacity.
In the meantime, we are still seeing emergency visits. If you’re in pain, have a broken tooth or an abscess, please call 847.570.2382. If you have essential ongoing treatment with us, we will keep you on the schedule or reschedule your treatment as needed.

Becoming a Patient
X-rays are an important diagnostic tool in dentistry because they aid in detecting problems that are not visible during a clinical exam.
- Your first appointment will be for a full set of x-rays and a comprehensive oral exam. In addition, a panoramic x-ray, which gives your dentist an expanded view of your jaws, is taken to complete your treatment plan.
- At the second appointment, your treatment will begin.
Pediatric patients are seen on Wednesday mornings from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Patients from the ages of 3-12 are eligible to be seen as pediatric patients.
