Dental emergencies always happen at the worst time. The day before a flight, A long holiday weekend, Saturday afternoon or the middle of a busy workday.
The essential thing really is putting myself in your position. If I was in an emergency, if I was in pain or had a tooth fracture. I would hope that someone would make time for me. Thus that is what I do for my patients.
I keep time in my schedule to accommodate emergency patients.
The appointment can be from as little as evaluating the problem and prescribing a medication that can help. Or taking care of the problem that same day. Often times same day dental treatment can put you back in good shape and put the incident behind you as if it never happened.
