Emergency Dentist

When you have a dental emergency there are a few things to consider when choosing what dentist to visit. Choosing the right dentist can make the process smooth and recovery quicker. In many cases patients do not have time in an emergency to search for the perfect dentist. Doing your research ahead of time is helpful so you know who to call if a dental emergency should occur.

What Should I Look For?

  • Research dentists in your area so the dentist is easy to get to and close to where you live. If you have to drive far to get to your dentist in an emergency this can add stress to the situation.
  • Ask what insurance plans the dental office accepts. Making sure your dentist accepts your insurance is important so you know this up front and are prepared. Call your insurance company and ask for a provider list. This can help give you a list of who has emergency hours and accepts emergency patients.
  • Ask about their hours of operation and if they are open for extended hours. Dental emergencies can happen at any time of the day, and knowing your dentist can accommodate hours outside of the work day may help. If a dentist accepts patients on an emergency basis this should be acceptable.
  • Make sure to ask the dentist if they treat both adults and children. Knowing you can run your child to their office is important ahead of time. For patients with children it is convenient to go to a dentist that handles dental emergencies for the entire family.
  • Ask what services they provide ahead of time. If you have a dental emergency and need cosmetic dental work afterwards, it is important to know if your dentist can provide that service. Otherwise, you may need a referral and have to see another dentist after the emergency is treated.

Planning your child’s first dental visit can be stressful. Many parents wonder when the perfect time is to bring their child in for their first exam. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentists or AAPD recommends that children visit the dentist by the age of one, or when they first notice signs of teeth erupting. Typically, primary teeth do not erupt until about six months of age.

Parents tend to worry how their child will feel or behave at the dentist for the first time. There are many benefits to visiting the dentist starting at a young age, and with positive encouragement and our amazing staff we always ensure your child’s first visit and every visit after will go well.

Helpful Ways to Prepare Your Child Before Their First Visit to Our Office

• We welcome all new patients to schedule a tour of our office and meet our staff. This helps your child get to know where they are going, and when they arrive they will feel more comfortable because they have already been here for a visit.

• Talk to your child about how important it is to see your dentist regularly. With positive attitude your child will feel excited and not afraid, and will enjoy visiting our office.

• There are dental books and TV shows available that you can show your child so they can get an idea what a dental office looks like, and what we do during a dental exam and cleaning.

• During your child’s appointment we recommend bringing in any comfort items such as a stuffed animal or blanket to make your child feel relaxed.

• Our staff provides each child with a reward at the end of each visit so they have something to look forward to. Parents are welcome to plan for a reward as an incentive to help the child get through their first appointment.

• It is important to talk to your child about how important dental hygiene is. Keeping our teeth and gums clean so we can have beautiful smiles can help teach them good oral hygiene habits at a young age.

Starting your child out right with proper dental care helps to set the stage for later in life and teaches children good oral hygiene. We look forward to establishing a good relationship with each of our pediatric patients, and our staff will help your child understand how important it is to take care of your teeth and visit our office regularly.

Our dental exams are thorough and we can check for any issues as your child grows older. We believe in preventative care to help keep your child’s teeth feeling and looking their best.
