Is this a dental emergency?

Patients are wondering if they have a dental emergency or not. Here is the list right from the American Dental Association, (ADA), on what is considered a dental emergency. Feel free to call us though because we are more than happy to talk to you! We are answering the phones (often from home) during our normal business hours. We schedule the emergencies so that there is no overlap and take extra care of our patients during this time by appointment only.

We have been taking lots of continuing education courses while we are not able to see the same amount of patients. We miss you and are excited for when we will get to see you regularly again. We actually got out load of lip balms in back at the beginning of March, so we’re stocked and ready with them at least! We are here for you for your questions and emergencies.
