WHAT TO DO IN CASE OF AN EMERGENCY
If you are experiencing a dental emergency, please call us at 604-852-5067.
If we have several emergencies occurring at once, we will prioritize emergencies on the basis of:
- Degrees of pain
- Further potential damage incurred
- Whether or not you are an existing patient
Whether you are a patient or not, if you call during office hours, we will do our best to get you in as soon as possible.
AFTER HOURS EMERGENCIES
After hours emergency service is provided only to current patients who require immediate dental treatment. Some cases that might require immediate treatment include:
- Sudden and persistent onset of extreme tooth pain
- Dental trauma caused by impact to the teeth or gums
Advil/Ibuprofen is also recommended for tooth pain as it is an anti-inflammatory and can be a helpful temporary relief for tooth pain. If the pain subsides, please contact us to schedule a check-up as you may still require further treatment.
Outside of office hours, a recorded message will provide instructions on how to access emergency treatment. If available, you will be connected with one of our dentist, otherwise you will be directed to our on-call network of trusted Abbotsford dentists.
NOT YET A PATIENT
If you are not yet one of our patients, please call our office during regular office hours and we will do our absolute best to get you in as soon as possible. However, if your emergency is occurring outside of office hours and you need immediate assistance, please go to the nearest emergency ward.
If you are still unsure if you require emergency attention, do not hesitate to call us at 604-852-5067 We are here to help.
