If a person has a dental emergency and they call the office during business hours, we get them in that day as soon as they can. If they can't come in right away, sometimes later on in the day, but we have time allotted every single day for people that are in need of dental treatment. Sometimes, it is not even a true emergency. Sometimes, they have a tooth that they just have a little rough spot on, but we make time every day to get them in. Now, if the emergency happens after hours, they call me on my cell phone and I'll meet them in the office. Just maybe about two weeks ago, I saw a patient—longstanding patient—that broke a tooth. I met him here on Saturday, had my trusty assistant, my wife, come with me—and she does all the weekend work with me. We saw him at nine o'clock on Saturday morning, he was out by 10 and we were both on our way.
When you suffer a dental emergency such as a broken tooth, it’s tough not to get stressed out and even a little scared. You may be in pain, and you’re definitely worried about the negative impact to your smile. It’s even worse when it happens to a child or other loved one.
