When someone has a dental emergency such as a broken tooth or a crown which came off or pain, we want them to come in so we can analyze their need and begin treatment. Many times, the presence or absence of pain is a poor indicator of the seriousness of a patient’s problem. Something which doesn’t hurt can be very serious and something which does hurt may not be serious but needs to be dealt with right away. Either Dr. Sanders or Dr. Loe are always available Monday through Friday to meet your emergency need. We have an oncall service for after hour emergencies for patients of record.
