A Small Idea
24 Hour Dental Care first opened its doors in late 2014. With some careful planning, a handful of dedicated people, and several gallons of coffee, a small idea grew into something big. Bigger, in fact, than anyone expected. A small emergency dental office in Indianapolis became nationally recognized overnight, appearing in the Indianapolis Star, USA Today, and in several large television broadcasts. Rather than bask in the limelight, however, the team continued doing what they set out to do — provide affordable and accessible dental care.
A Big Dream
Before the first patient stepped into a 24 Hour Dental Care location, the team set three goals: convenient, affordable, and quality dental care.
To make treatment convenient, each office was opened 24 hours a day (including weekends and holidays). However, a standard dental office’s scheduled appointments seemed too rigid to the team to be considered convenient. After some thought, the decision was made to provide dental services on a walk-in only basis. Walk-ins allowed patients to visit whenever they needed it most — the pinnacle of convenience.
Making dental care affordable was the easiest of the three goals. By participating in most insurance plans and Medicaid, some patients were able to receive treatment for the cost of co-pays. However, many people did not have dental insurance and were not able to benefit from this decision. With this in mind, the dental discount plan was created. This plan allowed patients to receive reduced fees simply by joining the plan for a $20 yearly fee. Thus, 24 Hour Dental Care became the most affordable dental office on the planet.
Quality dental care is far less black and white than the other goals. However, the team had a few key measures to ensure each patient received high-quality care. The first of these measures was technology. With better technology, better treatment could be provided. Therefore, 24 Hour Dental Care was equipped with the best x-ray devices possible. The other measure of quality care the team developed was focus. By not providing dental services such as whitening, braces, and cleanings, each dentist was able to focus on those services that help patients most. Focused care leads to quality care.
With these goals in mind, the team at 24 Hour Dental Care will continue to change dental care, putting patients first and always striving to ensure each visit is better than the last.

A Wide Range of Services for All Dental Needs

Emergency Dental Care
Dental emergencies come in many shapes and sizes. Fortunately, each of our dentists is highly skilled in providing the most effective solution for each and every one of them, 24 hours a day.
Wisdom Teeth Removal
Wisdom teeth removal is recommended for many patients as early as is safely possible. At our offices, this service is offered 24 hours a day for the most affordable prices around.
Some damaged teeth cannot be restored and require a dental extraction. Our dentists can provide painless, gentle extractions without the need for expensive referrals and appointments.
Immediate dentures allow patients who receive full mouth extractions to leave the office with the ability to smile and chew right away, as well as during the entire healing phase afterwards.
Many people experience a great deal of fear even walking in the door of a dental office. Oral sedation helps these patients receive the treatment they need, both comfortably and confidently.
