  • Emergency Dental Exam: Once you’re here, we’ll examine and take X-rays of their mouth so we can determine the exact source and severity of their emergency.
  • Treatment Plan: Our team will go over our findings with you and discuss possible treatment options (including the associated costs).
  • Provide Relief: Once we get the go-ahead from you, we’ll spring into action to help your child. We may recommend a follow-up visit if we can’t complete everything in a single appointment, but we will stop their pain before you leave!
