It never fails – the unexpected happens during the worst case scenario. A toothache, broken tooth, knocked -out tooth, lost filling or crown and abcess are all dental emergencies. A Sunday evening toothache, a knocked- out tooth during the Championship baseball game or a dental crown that comes off during your flight to Aruba. We are here for you – but so is this blog.
So tuck this in your back pocket – and know that we are here to help!
