What to bring to your emergency dental appointment?

You need to bring anything you regularly bring to a dental appointment, such as your insurance information and some form of identification. However, we understand that sometimes things are not immediately available during an emergency. Moreover, if this is an oral trauma case, please bring any lost tooth or pieces of your tooth if available.

Find all our paperwork here in our Patient Resources. You may fill it out and sign it, scan it, and email it to andrewwheatleydds@gmail.com, or drop it off at your appointment. 

Please note that even though this is an emergency, payment is due at the time of service. We accept most major insurance, cash, checks, and credit cards. We also offer CareCredit to finance. Please take a minute to review our Financial Policies.

What to do during a dental emergency?

Keep calm and call your dentist! We can assess the situation and recommend next steps over the phone. If you have a cracked or lost tooth, collect the tooth and keep it moist in milk. For swelling due to trauma, try an ice pack and over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medicine to bridge the time until you can get to the dentist. If you’re not experiencing oral pain but still have a dental issue, such as a cracked tooth, broken dentures, or a lost filling, please don’t hesitate to call us! Research shows periodontal problems can elevate the risk for other health issues, including diabetes, stroke, and cardiovascular disease.
