Emergency Dentistry Overview

Accidents can happen to any patient, at any time. Our Richmond dentists make every effort to schedule same-day emergency dental visits to provide patients with the immediate attention they need. Patients of record are welcome to call after hours when experiencing a true dental emergency to receive further instructions regarding their oral health. Our dentists are equipped to handle your oral emergencies in a timely, professional manner right here in our Midlothian office.

Our dental office allows time to see patients with emergency dental care within a few hours of your call, if not immediately! For non-life-threatening emergencies, our dentists are standing by to take care of our current patients. Below is a list of accidents that may happen and need immediate attention:
