If you experience an orthodontic emergency during office hours, simply call our office and a staff member will determine the best action to take. If you experience an emergency outside of our office hours, call the office and you will be directed to the after-hours answering service. The answering service will then contact a staff member who will return your call and determine the best course of action.
Fortunately, there are few true orthodontic emergencies. Most emergencies can be resolved on your own at least temporarily. We encourage you to watch our video on Orthodontic Emergencies here on our website. If your problem is not resolved with these instructions then call our office immediately for further instructions.
We will always do our best to find a solution to your emergency as soon as possible. If you experience an emergency, we ask that you call our office immediately. Our staff can instruct you on a temporary solution or prepare the doctor’s schedule to have you come in as soon as possible depending on the case.
