Emergencies come in all shapes and sizes – sometimes your emergency might just involve the need for ice-cream. Another time it might have to do with something less soft and comforting – like a collision between the floor and a little mouth. Or a sudden, stabbing pain in a molar. The ice-cream emergency can be taken care of down the street at Marble Slab Creamery, but the second or other tooth-related emergencies? Call the team at Growing Great Grins! We are always available to help when a dental emergency happens.
- If the emergency is related to an accident or head trauma, call us, but also head to the emergency room. It is important that we monitor any mouth injury, even if you are treated at the hospital.
- If it seems as if we can treat the problem here, we will work you right into the schedule.
- If your accident occurs on the weekend or after hours, don’t worry, we can help with that too. We are in a call group to make sure our patients always have access to a dentist.
In addition, the Growing Great Grins team is completely prepared to take care of emergencies both in and out of office visits and sedation procedures. Dr. Leslie and Dr. Judith attend pediatric dental simulation courses to gain practice in managing emergencies, and we run quarterly drills to refresh our skills so that the entire team is ready to spring into action when an emergency arises.
