Dental Emergency

Dental Emergency

You never know when an emergency is going to happen.

That is why Complete Family Dental offers comprehensive dental care 6 days of the week. We continue to expand our hours so that we can take care of you no matter when your injury occurs. Trust our team to have you covered in any emergency.

Same-Day Urgent Appointments

When an injury happens, you have to act fast. Same-day appointments are available for severe situations so that every patient can feel safe and taken care of by our experienced team. We have you covered on any emergency cases like teeth extractions, root canal treatments, injuries, or toothaches.

Our process is simple and stress free involving the following:

  1. Assess the situation. We’ll begin with an examination to see what we are working with. At this point, we will officially diagnose the issue at hand and make you aware of all of the options available for your care.
  2. Schedule a treatment. Once you decide on how you’d like to proceed, we can either treat you in-office that day or book a series of appointments required to finish the treatment.
  3. Collect payment. Payment can be difficult, especially in an unforeseen emergency. At Complete Family Dental, we understand this. That is why we offer several payment options to all of our patients. No one should have to forego essential care because of the price tag.

Book your appointment online today to schedule your emergency dental appointment and be seen by our experienced dental team.
