How To Choose An Emergency Dentist

How to choose an emergency dentist - Campus dentist

A dental emergency can be scary, but you must seek help quickly to avoid potential long-term damage to your teeth and mouth. While you may dread visiting the dentist, putting off your emergency and procrastinating can be detrimental to your oral and overall health.

Unfortunately, a dental emergency can occur at any time of day, and your family dentist may be unavailable to assist you. Many people’s first instinct is to go to the emergency room, but it is not the best choice as they often do not have the appropriate tools and staff to handle dental emergencies.

That is why we suggest choosing an emergency dentist before an emergency happens. No more frantically looking at dentist reviews online or asking your friends for last-minute recommendations. You can be prepared, just in case.

Here are some tips to make choosing an emergency dentist easier.

Look In Your Local Area

When you have an emergency on your hands, the last thing you want to do is travel a long distance for help. Try to find an emergency dentist within 20 to 30 minutes of places you visit most often, be it your home, school or workplace.

Consider Their Reputation

Just as you would not visit a new restaurant without looking at reviews, it is essential to choose a dentist with a good reputation. A dental clinic’s website or brochures can make big promises, but you can learn a lot more from customer reviews. However, do not discredit the practice based on a single review! Try to take everything with a grain of salt and consider the reviews as a whole.

Double-check Their Hours

We cannot predict emergencies. That is why you need an emergency dentist with good availability. Check that they are open beyond your family dentist’s hours or if they have a 24/7 phone line and accept patients on an emergency basis. Responsiveness is crucial. You can only get the help you need if your dentist picks up!

Ask About Costs

While price should not be your only determining factor when choosing an emergency dentist, you should look into the costs before visiting your dentist. If you have dental insurance, your insurance provider may also give you a list of practices that accept the plan.

Ask About The Ages They Treat

This is especially important if you have a child or an elderly family member, as some dentists only treat adults.
