Our philosophy on dental emergencies is very simple “If you need toothache relief or another type of dental emergency, you are first in line… PERIOD.”
If you have lost a tooth or are in pain, go to the American Dental Association guideline to save your tooth:
Interestingly enough, I didn’t learn this in Dental School. As an avid pet owner I was sitting in my Veterinarian Office waiting for my sick puppy to be treated, when I saw a sign on the receptionist desk that read:
Regularly Scheduled Patients
Since my pup was sick, I appreciated their philosophy as I had just called that morning and without hesitation the receptionist told me to come right in. What an amazing way to run an office, and this is why our office follows this same philosophy.
We take toothaches very seriously, because we know tooth pain can cripple your life in unimaginable ways. Sometimes it’s the all night toothache, a broken tooth on a piece of candy, or food that has packed between your gums. Often times that pain level gets to a 10 out of 10 and you don’t know what to do.
Our Kansas City and Independence, MO offices are open Monday through Friday, 8 AM-5 PM, and our talented Doctors we will be there to provide urgent dental care. We are willing to come in early, stay late, and even work through lunch to get you in and comfortable again.
