What Is Emergency Dentistry?
Emergency dentistry refers to urgent dental situations that need to be attended to immediately. Examples include a severe toothache, a broken tooth, a dislodged tooth, or a dental injury of some kind. Getting to the dentist as soon as possible could be the difference between saving or losing a tooth.

If your emergency occurs during normal office hours, give us a call at your most convenient location. We will see you as soon as possible according to the urgency of your situation. If your emergency occurs after hours, call your most convenient location and follow the prompts given in the after hours voicemail.

If your situation escalates at any point to a life threatening degree, call 911 or proceed to the nearest emergency department.
