What is a Dental Emergency?

When can you see the dentist?

We realize that you may have questions about whether you should have dental procedures during the COVID-19 pandemic.

ADA is currently recommending dentists close their offices to all but emergency dental procedures. The ADA has provided guidelines to help patients determine when to consult their dentist as to whether care should be rescheduled*.

If you have any questions about emergency dentistry feel free to contact our office at (817)410-7373.
