ATTENTION PATIENTS: Mask Requirement and Screening

Although the Alabama statewide mask mandate expired April 9, the City of Birmingham approved an extended mask mandate through May 24. If you have an upcoming appointment, please know that all patients and caregivers are required to wear a mask or face covering inside the School of Dentistry facility. These can be cloth masks or commercially made masks.

Warning! Face coverings should not be worn by:

  • Children under the age of two.
  • People who have trouble breathing.
  • Anyone unable to remove the face covering without help.

If one of the above reasons is applicable, please call 205-934-3077 prior to your appointment.

We are also conducting advance and onsite symptomatic screening, including a temperature check, for all patients and caregivers entering the School of Dentistry. Patients should enter the building through the front (atrium) entrance on 7th Avenue S. in order to be screened.

Please view this COVID-19 Patient Alert for more information on preparing for your appointment.

1st Floor

If you have an urgent dental need and/or only want one specific concern addressed, you may be a better fit for our Urgent Care (limited/emergency) Clinic, a walk-in daytime dental emergency clinic where patients are seen on a first-come, first-served basis. Patients new to UAB Dentistry or who have not been in our care for more than two years may come to this clinic for limited dental procedures and emergencies without an appointment.

There is a fee for the exam and X-rays in this clinic. The fee does not cover any treatment that might be needed. The clinic is located on the 1st floor of the School of Dentistry.

Registration hours are 8:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. for the morning clinic and 1:00 p.m.- 2:30 p.m. for the afternoon clinic.

For questions, call (205) 934-4532.
