Please read below before your appointment and before scheduling.
While we pride ourselves in helping patients after normal working hours, there are somethings we cannot do. There are also times when a emergency needs to be addressed at an Emergency Room:
1) If you believe you are experiencing a true medical emergency, please call 911 or go directly to the ER / hospital.
2) We may not be able to provide treatment if your blood pressure is too high. Anesthetic can harm you if your blood pressure is elevated.
3) We may not be able to provide treatment if you have a specific allergy to the local anesthetic we use.
4) We will not provide treatment if you are intoxicated.
5) If you or your loved one has a large swelling on the face, then often times an emergency dental visit is not the best option. A hospital / ER visit may be needed to drain the infection. If you or a loved one presents with a large swelling on the face or neck, please go to the Emergency Room / Hospital for treatment.
6) Some root canals are more complicated than others. If needed, you will be referred to an endodontist for a root canal.
7) Some extractions are more complicated than others. If needed, you may be referred to an Oral Surgeon for an extraction.
8) We do not place implants, but we do restore them. If you need an implant, then you will be referred to a specialist for implant placement.
