What is considered an emergency visit?

If you are experiencing pain in your mouth, inflammation or signs of infection in the gums, pus, swelling, or increased tooth sensitivity, this is considered an emergency that should be brought to our attention as soon as possible. 
We are also conducting emergency dental surgeries if necessary. 
During this time, all patients should be diligent about brushing and flossing their teeth. Any patient who experiences pain or swelling needs to call us immediately. 

Who can visit us for emergencies?

If you have never visited us before, you can still come to us in the case of an emergency! New patients and current patients are accepted for emergency visits. 
If you are unsure whether you are eligible for an emergency visit, please don’t hesitate to call our office and we can instruct you over the phone or set up a video chat via phone or computer. 
New patients who have x-rays from their dentist can send those in for pre-treatment evaluation or video consultation. New patients can also fill out their new patient forms online to expedite the exam process when normal operations resume!
