Our office, we cover dental emergencies 24/7. We're usually open five days a week, Monday through Friday, but if it's after hours, if you call the office, it'll give you a number to my cell phone and I'll answer it. If we need to come in, we can take a look. If it's something that we can wait until the next day, we always try to fit emergencies in because we know it's concerning to the parents so we want to get them in as quickly as we can.
If your child has a dental emergency, contact Dentistry for Children right away!
