Dental Emergency & After Hour Care

If you require emergency care during our regular office hours, please call our office immediately and we will make arrangements to see you as quickly as possible.  Please do not wait until the late afternoon to call us as this greatly reduces our ability to appoint you in a timely fashion. Should your emergency require the services of another dental specialist (such as an Endodontist in the event a tooth requires root canal therapy), calling late in the day significantly limits our ability to refer you to that specialist on an immediate basis.

Should you require emergency attention when the office is closed, and you are a patient of record, or a patient of record at an office we are covering for, please call us immediately.  Our answering service will take your information and page the doctors who will return your call at the first moment possible. When you receive a return phone call, please have available the name, location, and phone number of your pharmacy should one of the doctors need to call that pharmacy on your behalf.

While it is very unusual for all of the doctors to be out of town at one time, there are occasions when they are attending a continuing education program together.  Should this be the case, arrangements will be made in advance for a periodontal colleague to take emergency calls on our behalf.  Thank you.
