Emergency Dentistry Overview

Did you know that about 22 percent of people have experienced dental pain in the last six months? What is your plan in case of a dental emergency?

Dental accidents can happen at any time – so it’s best to be prepared with a dentist that you can trust to be available in an emergency. Our Richmond-area dentists at Midlothian Family Dentistry make every effort to schedule same-day emergency dental visits to provide patients with the immediate attention they need.

Whatever your emergency may be, urgent dental care can provide you with relief and prevent any further problems for your health. Delaying your emergency care can be very uncomfortable and possibly lead to more serious health conditions. Whether your case is causing you pain, affecting the appearance of your smile, or you think you might have an infection, contact us immediately. Existing patients are welcome to call after hours to receive further instructions regarding their oral health.

Our dentists are equipped to handle your dental emergencies in a timely, professional manner, right here in our Midlothian office. Most often, you will be able to be seen within just a few hours of your call, if not immediately.

For non-life-threatening emergencies, our dentists are standing by to take care of our existing patients’ dental needs.
