Of course, if you end up with a sudden oral injury or find yourself in severe pain, you will feel ready to pick up the phone and call us. However, that does not necessarily mean you’ve done any of the prep work that can ensure your experience with visiting your emergency dentist is a smooth one. Guess what? We have some very helpful pointers, so that just in case you break a tooth, suffer a strong impact, end up with a severe toothache, etc., you are ready!
Keep Our Number Handy
If you’re attached to your cell phone, then this will be your best place to store our information. Since emergencies result in panic, you may wish to simply add us in as the contact name “Dentist” (unless you’ve been coming to us for years). As a result, you can access us in the drop of a hat. With our phone number stored and ready for use, you may pick up your phone and call to schedule a visit with your emergency dentist without needing to search for contact details. Of course, if you prefer to store the information in an address book or through some other means, go for it!
Do You Have A Plan?
Since you don’t know if you’ll ever need the help of your emergency dentist or not, you might not have a very specific plan. However, it’s wise to have gotten some details squared away just in case. Here’s what we mean:
- Choose a trusted friend or relative who you know you can rely on in case of an emergency.
- Take a look at our webpage regarding dental emergencies, so you know how to respond in the moment and right before you head to our practice.
