At The Dental ER, Emergencies are diagnosed and/or treated as soon as possible. Dental pain can often come on strong and without much warning. It is not uncommon for a patient to call their general dentist only to find that they cannot be seen for an appointment for a week or two.  
            The Dental ER offers same day appointments for emergency situations. Simply walk in or call for an appointment. Some of the other services and treatments offered at The Dental ER include oral surgery, root canal treatment, mini denture implants, orthodontics, Express Smiles, TMJ treatment and sleep apnea appliances. Call or stop by our office to schedule an appointment.
