I had lost 3 teeth resulting from the pain during chemo treatments from 2000-2006 and this rear molar was the last one to survive, wish I had something to bite on during painful procedures… Dr Yu and the staff made a dreadful experience a BREEZE… Come to find out my wisdom tooth had to go too as it had blocked the way to the tooth that had SPLIT and started breaking up and I didn’t expect this… Dr Yu explained the procedure and went to work… Let me say this, he and his assistant were so personable and I was TOTALLY relaxed the whole time(as a child I had bad experiences with a dentist that lasted) as a result and a NEW NEVER seen happened… My wisdom tooth had 4 roots, Dr Yu explained that he had never seen that… I will advise and recommend that if you need anything done and you can’t wait for a consultation, wait for the appointment date go straight to CHARLOTTE EMERGENCY DENTAL on PARK RD don’t forget PARK RD!!! He also SAVED ME $$$$ on my other Dr that I had seen before… I will come back if I need any other procedures done!!! I SUGGEST THAT YOU SHOULD TOO!!!

I have been terrified of dentist my entire life but baby!!!!! ….. My experience here was beyond wonderful. When I can eat good again I’m going to take my friend who referred me here to lunch!!!!! The staff was professional, kind, and understanding from the moment I walked in the door. Dr. Yu was nothing short of amazing!!! My tooth extraction was quick and painless. I really appreciate everything this office did and I would recommend it to anyone.

The doctors and staff are simply amazing. Everyone was kind and gentle, making sure I was comfortable and understood everything that was happening. I’ve been here 4 times in two months to deal with my dental issues and can honestly say after the first visit I had no fears or worries about the following visits. They do a great job and I couldn’t be happier with my new healthy smile, thanks to them. Sometimes you have to be patient and wait, as it is an emergency dental office, but for me it was always worth it. I’ve never been to an office with such wonderful doctors and staff. Thanks again for everything CED!

I went here on Good Friday as a walk in with horrible tooth pain. It took about 20 minutes to get in because I should have done the paperwork before I got there.Then the procedure took maybe 30 minutes, which was 2 extractions. Everyone in the office was really nice and tried to make me comfortable. I was extremely anxious about being there. Dr Yu was awesome. He came in and let me decide what I wanted to do and then he gave me some novocaine and got the teeth out. It did hurt but it was because it was so infected. But I’ll tell you that it feels so much better now even after the novocaine wore off. There’s literally no pain now even where the extractions were. Thank you so much Dr Yu for helping me! There was no way I could have gone another day in pain like that! I’m extremely grateful for Dr Yu and his whole staff.

I prefer Charlotte Emergency Dental to having a personal dentist. They always address the issues I have and never try to get me to have additional work. They feel like a small, friendly family, and take the time to talk to you and answer questions. They always take excellent care of me. Don’t be fooled that they are an emergency dental facility. These great, experienced people are like family. You won’t regret giving it a try!! The only place I go!!!

I highly recommend Charlotte Emergency Dental for your dental emergencies. I am a very nervous patient, but Dr. Yu was very friendly and explained everything he was doing, thereby, putting me more at ease. Dr. Yu’s assistant, Diane, was also very kind and compassionate. Honestly, everyone at the office was very nice. I thought the costs were also very reasonable.

I would like to personally thank Dr. Yu and Vicky for the outstanding customer service I received today. Vicky insured that I was taken care of during the check in process. She was professional and polite during a very frustrating time. Vicky’s kindness more than made up for the uncouth young woman who initially greeted me. Dr. Yu singlehandedly consulted with me and listened to my concerns then offered a solution that addressed my health and immediate needs. I sincerely appreciate his attention to detail and patience. He’s a stellar doctor and I’m truly grateful he helped me during my emergency visit.

WONDERFUL!!! WONDERFUL!!!! From the first call to the checkout! Best experience I have ever had at the dentist! The staff is so Professional, caring, and kind!!! I had a BAD toothache! They were quick to get me in without an appointment, the procedure (extraction) went quick and painless! THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!! I was in and out in 35 minutes!!!!

I woke up Sunday morning and my face was swollen on my left side. I had an old crown that was hurting and I couldn’t even bite down on it. I dreaded going to the dentist but I checked my gums and realized my face was swollen because something was infected. I needed relief right away so I starting searching for dentists that were open on the weekend. I called Charlotte Emergency Dental and the assistant at the reception desk was so friendly and encouraged me to get there as quickly as possible. They take walk-ins. I arrived around 11:30. There was only one dentist in that day but I wouldn’t have known that if they weren’t kind enough to let me know. There were about four people ahead of me but since the dentist was going to be able to see me that day, I waited. By 2 pm I had x-rays done, a consultation, and then oral surgery to remove an abcess and extract the bad tooth that was underneath my crown. Dr. Yu was genius!. He was even able to salvage part of the crown. Wow! The staff was super nice and I feel so much better. The receptionist made sure I had all the paperwork ready for my insurance and everything was explained so clearly. Thank you!

Amazing experience and care from the first call to simply inquire about the particular needs I had to the follow up calls after my procedures. Competitive prices with exemplary service and care. I rarely write reviews but felt it was the least I could do considering my experience. Very highly recommended this team!

I Am so Happy that I came here on Thursday, To take care of my swollen mouth and I couldn’t take the pain any longer.They did an x-ray of the swollen site and found out what the problem was and told me how they can solve the problem with the solution of removing my broken tooth and the root and drain the infection out of my mouth and sent me on my way with medicine for me to get fill at my pharmacy.I was relieved after he pulled out the root out of my mouth.I recommend this place to anyone that is in pain to go there and when you leave you will be pain free.

Okay, so bad toothache no sleep and a dental appointment that is 3 days out. I needed some relief and I couldn’t wait any longer. I found this place online and decided to go. Do the paperwork online at their website and you will be seen much quicker. Everyone was very nice and the dentist was awesome. They gave me my options and prices. I could have the work done there or go to my dentist. The x-ray showed I had a crack in my tooth so I decided to have it pulled there. Once it was pulled the dentist took the time to show me just how bad it was which in turn saved me money if I had tried to save it. Overall it was a great experience and I would recommend them to anyone.

I had the best experience here! I had to get my tooth removed and it was so quick and painless. Everyone was so nice and understanding and made sure that I was okay throughout the whole procedure! I really loved my experience here they are so professional and I would recommend them to anyone!

My fiance and I came in early Sunday morning for a last minute tooth extraction, and were surprised that they were able to take us on such short notice. The staff were very friendly on the phone, and they were able to get us seen quickly. Dr. Yu and his assistant Vicki were awesome, and managed to calm my fiance (who is extremely scared of needles).

I Visited Charlotte emergency dental to get my front tooth repaired after an embarrassing chicken wing accident which caused me to chip off half of my tooth. I work in a retail banking environment and am facing customers daily so not a good look at all. Dr Yu not only fixed my tooth but did so in a way that you can’t even tell it was broken in the first place. To this day I get compliments about my smile and I owe it all to him, he truly saved the day!!!!!

Clay Johnson (Source: Google)


From the first call I made to them all the way to the calls received following my subsequent procedures, I received nothing but sincere care and exemplary service. Very competitive pricing and amazing teamwork displayed by the entire office. It’s very evident they enjoy and take pride in creating the best possible experience for their patients. I certainly won’t call around anymore for dental work based on my experience here. Very highly recommended!!

Great! Quick and very knowledgeable staff! Had a horrible toothache over the weekend and searching open dentist came up to this office, best decision ever! Was in and out within 35 min with a prescription after seeing an infection on the X-ray, cheaper then my regular dentist that doesn’t even have emergency hours !

Eric Baysingar (Source: Google)


Very friendly staff! Would visit again if necessary. The lady who took my x-rays and assisted in the procedure genuinely cared about my well-being, and was adamant about getting me the ideal treatment given my circumstances. They did not seem to push for more expensive treatments, just making sure that I got what was best for my situation. They work very quickly given the amount of people, while still providing friendly service. Go early if you can, as people lined up very quickly upon opening. First come first serve.

I have had multiple bad experiences at dentists and that combined with a needle phobia and shame about my teeth made me a complete mess when I had to have a tooth extracted today. The staff and doctor were all really kind, patient, and understanding. Getting the appt and filing out paperwork was easy and straightforward. I was in and out in a reasonable amount of time and felt no pain during the extraction. I’m sorry I didn’t get the name of the hygienist/nurse but thank you so much for being so nice.

This place was amazing! I cancelled my original appointment due finding another dentist in my network. They actually ended up canceling on me so I call Charlotte Emergency Dental back to see if they could take me in. They told me they would have a room waiting and they did! Absolutely no wait and I was out in 20 minutes! The staff was so nice and friendly!

I hate the dentist; however, this office was more like home it had an awesome atmosphere to it. They made sure I was comfortable before my tooth was pulled and after but most of all they comforted me while the dentist was pulling my tooth and that really was awesome. Plus after I walked out of the room I seen 3/4 workers there and THEY MADE SURE that everything! They are the best and yes I recommend

I came in with an infection in my jaw and NEEDED my wisdom tooth removed, this was the ONLY place I could get same day service done fast. The doc did an absolutely amazing job and was super fast took maybe an hour total with X-ray and numbing meds and pulling the tooth. Will come back again to get the other 3 removed.

Big thanks to Dr. Yu and the rest of the team there – I called in the early afternoon and was seen only a few hours later to get a tooth extracted that had been hurting me terribly for two days straight. They were super patient and kind to me, especially after I started getting worked up because I’m awful when it comes to dentist visits and issues with my teeth. The extraction took less than 20 minutes and they were very helpful and informative with the aftercare process as well. I would definitely go back for any other dental emergencies!

I woke up this morning to the most excruciating pain I have ever felt …. I must say I am very pleased the fact I was able to be seen within 45 minutes( though the pain made it feel like 3 hours ) I was taken straight in and they numbed my mouth so I could get some relief my tooth did have to be pulled but everyone was very straight forward and very understanding while I cried trying to explain everything …. thank you for making me feel better so fast !!

I have a bad history with dentists. I suffer from high anxiety and going to the dentist is something I have put off for years because of my fears. The staff at Charlotte Emergency Dental were very kind and compassionate. I had to go back a few days later and the staff was even more kind on my second visit. I would definitely recommend Charlotte Emergency Dental to anyone no matter what condition your teeth are in. You will be treated with respect, compassion and relief!

We were referred by Atrium Health in South Park because we needed a dentist that was open on Saturday. My friend woke up with a tooth-ache and I made an appointment for her. When we arrived we were met by the Administrator at the door who listened to my friend’s issue and took her temperature. The place is very clean and they practice all the distance and mask requirements for Covid safety & prevention. We were asked to wait in the car for about 15 minutes and my friend received a text with a link to register her personal information and dental insurance details. Once her turn came up she paid $100 for the evaluation and was seen by a Dentist within 15 minutes. She was given the option of a root canal or extraction. My friend decided on the extraction and she paid another $305 for the procedure. While the extraction was taking place the administrator gave me the forms to file a claim but she filled out the information for us and gave us an envelope which included the evaluation and a copy of the bill. We just had to insert the forms, seal the envelope, and mail the claim with the attached documents. This Emergency Dental office has the technology to fill out the application on your phone, the total waiting time was about 30 minutes, and the staff was very courteous and helpful. My friend was very nervous because she hates needles, but the staff made sure she was comfortable, and they took their time with her procedure. Customer Services the way it should be. We highly recommend them.

This is a really great emergency dentist. My husband was seen on an early Tuesday morning, and was out with 30 minutes. He received a tooth extraction. I am so thankful for the staff at this location for taking great care of my husband. I love him so very much and I am glad he is out of pain. I would recommend anyone to give this place a try.

Good experience for the pain I was in. I did my research, I set an appointment but could not make it due to work. I called canceled and was the first person in the next morning the whole process was quick. Walked in spoke to the nice lady who’s name I cannot remember she got me right in, after making my payment I was done in 45 minutes. They even called to check on me a week later. Would recommend for anyone with a dental emergency.

This is a great dental clinic, I’m an Iraq war veteran and they gave me a military discount and great service. I had a broken tooth extracted from my mouth and I didnt feel any pain during the process. The staff were also very honest and had integrity, because they called me after I had left the office to reimburse me for a payment that I had made that they said I shouldn’t have paid. This is the best dentist office in Charlotte and I would refer them to anyone. ~Davon Thom…

This was by far my best dental experience. My teeth are in terrible condition and I know that and they didn’t make me feel uncomfortable or less confident because of that. They went right to my problem area and got started! 1 hour later I left with 3 teeth extracted and zero pain from the procedure. The last place that extracted a tooth for me, traumatized me. But this time was amazing and quick, even with getting 3 teeth extracted! Thank you so much Dr. Stephen Yu & team, I really appreciate you!!

Dr Yu and the staff are super friendly and honest and straight to the point! I’m glad they are here to help me in a time of need. My doctor was not available and they got me out of pain. I knew it wasn’t going to be a walk in the park but they led me through the process very kindly and I feel much better now.

I had the misfortune of chipping a tooth that had become an issue months ago. I was anxious & emotional, so that made going to a new place for dental care that much worse. All the staff were nice, and I was really impressed by how pleasant, professional and proficient the dentist was. My tooth looks fantastic:)
