How can I get an appointment when I’m having a dental emergency?
The first thing you’ll want to do if you think you’re experiencing a dental emergency is give our office a call. This way we can determine if you need immediate assistance or if an appointment can be made within the next couple of days. If you are coming in for an emergency appointment, we’ll ask you to explain the situation so that a room can be prepared and our team can get ready for your arrival. While our contact form is convenient, we ask that patients call our office for immediate emergency assistance.
What should I expect for an emergency visit?
This largely depends on the type of emergency that you’re experiencing. Once you come in to see us, Dr. Phillips will assess the situation and proceed accordingly. Most dental emergencies fall into one of the following categories: Severely chipped, broken or knocked out tooth, a lost dental restoration, unrelenting tooth pain, uncontrollable bleeding, or an abscess.
Is emergency dentistry covered by insurance?
Some insurance plans do cover emergency visits, but not all of them. If you are concerned about financing your emergency dental care, our team can help you figure out the most affordable way to pay for your care after your treatment. If your emergency is very time-sensitive, like in a case where a tooth has been knocked out, you will want to get treatment right away to avoid further dental services and costs down the road.
