What do I do if I have an emergency after hours?
Even when you take excellent care of your teeth, dental emergencies will occur. When you have a dental emergency, it’s important that you receive prompt attention to prevent serious problems from developing. If you need urgent attention during office hours, we will do everything we can to accommodate you the same day so you can get the relief you need.
However, it seems like most dental emergencies occur at the most inconvenient times, usually after hours. This can be frustrating, especially if you’re in pain. You most likely feel helpless because you can’t get any help at the time you need it most.
At Old Settlers Dental, we’re here to help. We are always available by phone at any hour. Simply call our main office number, and you will be directed to a special emergency number where you can leave a message.
Dr. Lewcock or Dr. Zavala will return your call as soon as possible to evaluate your emergency. We will either recommend steps you can take to stay comfortable until the next day, or we’ll make arrangements to see you immediately if necessary.
If you aren’t sure if your situation is a true emergency, please give us a call. You can count on us to be there for you!
