Should you visit Emergency Dental or the ER?

Is this a problem for Emergency Dental or the ER?

Emergency Dental is a unique concept to help patients avoid crowding the ER with their toothaches. According to the ADA “every year in the U.S., there are an estimated 2 million visits to hospital emergency departments (EDs) for dental pain. Many of these visits can be referred to local dentists and clinics, saving our health care system an estimated $1.7 billion while providing people with the ongoing oral care they need.” Patients questioning whether their toothache should be seen in an emergency room or a dental office should call an Emergency Dental office to seek advice.  

Why should you visit Emergency Dental instead of your local ER?

  • Avoid overcrowding
  • Avoid long wait times at the ER
  • Emergency rooms are not equipped to handle dental emergencies
  • You’ll most likely be referred back to a dental office for treatment
  • The ER visit will be costly

Our Emergency Dental offices are open during times where other dental offices might be closed.  We are open extended hours, weekends, and holidays. Emergency Dental offers the convenience of same day appointments which is important for those unexpected toothaches. If you have ever visited any of our Emergency Dental locations you will find yourself in a calm and supportive environment.   As of now, you can visit our Emergency Dental offices at 10 different locations. Emergency Dental is growing and you can expect to see us in more locations soon!
