Go to a dental school to get it done, it’s cheaper than most private practices. I can give you a rough guideline as to what will happen. You’ll say “I have a toothache” and they’ll probably have some sort of Emergency clinic for you to go to in the school.
Have you been here before? If not, fill this out. Then you’ll wait for the first available student.
Student exams your tooth, reviews your medical history, and paper work. This is the part that can take some time b/c the student will have to review the medical data with a faculty member. An x-ray or 2 will be taken.
Ultimately you’ll get referred to the oral surgery department. Oral surgery will have students exam you and write you a script for antibiotics for infection and some pain meds depending if there is an infection or not.
You’ll get an appointment to get the tooth pulled out next time after your medication is taken, specifically the antibiotics.
If not a dental school, then a hospital. I know Bellevue had an oral surgery department. I’m pretty sure your local hospital can pull out the tooth. Most likely you’ll get medication for infection and pain, then a follow up appointment for an extraction.
