A dental emergency is not something you should wait to address. You need to seek prompt attention and treatment from a dental professional. A dental emergency is, of course, not something you can just plan for and usually happens quite suddenly. We understand that and will make arrangements for you to come in to see us as soon as possible. When you call us for emergency care, we will schedule you to meet with our dentists quickly.
