Patient Information

Our dental care team enjoys welcoming new patients of all ages to our family dental practice serving Northeast Philadelphia and the Delaware Valley. Our focus is to provide high-quality same-day dentistry for patients who need urgent dental care. But we’re much more than an emergency dental office; we are a full-service general dentist that also offers cosmetic dentistry and advanced dental implant placement.

Our Dental Office Location

The Philadelphia Dentist is located in Northeast Philadelphia at 7718 Castor Avenue, four blocks north of Cottman Avenue. We are on the first floor, and there is metered parking in front of our building and free street parking a little way up the side streets. The 59 bus stops in front of our building.

Same-Day Emergency Appointments

We are Philadelphia’s Most Convenient Dentist! When you have a toothache and need to see an emergency dentist the same day, we’re here starting at 7 AM every day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, including holidays! Call us at (215) 342-7718 to schedule your same-day dental appointment.

  • Monday: 7 AM to 7 PM
  • Tuesday: 7 AM to 7 PM
  • Wednesday: 7 AM to 7 PM
  • Thursday: 7 AM to 7 PM
  • Friday: 7 AM to 7 PM
  • Saturday: 7 AM to 2 PM
  • Sunday: 7 AM to 2 PM

We strongly recommend that you avoid going to the emergency room unless your emergency is life-threatening. They aren’t set up to handle dental problems, and your visit can cost ten times what it costs to have the same problem addressed by your dentist.

Since we offer same-day appointments, we don’t accept walk-in patients out of courtesy to our scheduled patients. Call us right away, and we’ll get you on our schedule for an appointment that day. Don’t worry—we assure you that we will see you that day to provide the treatment and relief you need.

Comfort, Caring, and Convenience

At The Philadelphia Dentist, we welcome emergency and non-emergency patients from all around Northeast Philadelphia and the Delaware Valley area. Many patients who come to us with urgent dental needs enjoy the experience so much that they stay on to become regular patients.

Our outstanding dental team puts your needs first, and we are pleased to offer all our patients nitrous oxide (laughing gas) sedation at no additional charge. Help yourself to a cup of coffee and relax in one of our comfy sofas during your brief wait. During treatment, we’ll pamper you with special touches like neck pillows and blankets for your comfort.
