How Do I Get Emergency Dental Care?
Many emergency rooms lack the means to properly handle dental emergencies. As such, unless your emergency is life-threatening (in which case you should call 911), it’s generally better to contact a dentist when you have an urgent oral health issue. If you call our office, our team can give you first-aid advice and set up an emergency visit. After examining your mouth, we will let you know what options for treatment are available. It’s important to seek emergency dental care quickly, as the situation is likely to grow worse if action isn’t taken.
How Do I Find the Best Place to Get Dental Work Done?
When looking at a new dental practice, you may want to consider the following:
Will they take my dental insurance?
What kinds of services do they offer?
Do they have hours that work with my schedule?
Are they located near my home or place of work?
What kind of care do they give their patients?
Keep these questions in mind while researching the practice so that you can determine whether it’s a good fit for you. Remember that you can always read online reviews if you want a patient’s perspective of what the practice is like.
