The emergency room is ideal for life threatening, medical emergencies. Most emergency rooms are not equipped to deal with dental emergencies. They usually do not have the equipment or the personnel to attend to such issues. Also, you can expect to have extensive wait times and high copays without real resolution of your dental issue.

We accept all adult and pediatric emergencies.
