What to do in a Dental Emergency: 

  • Knocked out permanent teeth

Find the tooth, handle the tooth by the top (crown), not the root portion. You may rinse the tooth, but DO NOT clean or handle the tooth unnecessarily. Try to reinsert it in its socket. Have the child hold the tooth in place by biting on a clean gauze or cloth. If you cannot reinsert the tooth, transport the tooth in cup containing milk. See a dentist in 1-1.5 hours! Time is a critical factor in saving the tooth.

  • Toothache

Clean the area around the sore tooth thoroughly. Rinse the mouth vigorously with warm salt water or use dental floss to dislodge trapped food or debris. DO NOT place aspirin on the gum or on the aching tooth. See a dentist as soon as possible.

  • Broken tooth

Rinse dirt from injured area with warm water. Place cold compresses over the face in the area of the injury. Locate and save any broken tooth fragments. See a dentist immediately.

  • Bleeding after baby teeth falls out

Fold and pack a clean, cold, moist gauze or cloth over the bleeding area. Have the child bite on the gauze with pressure for 15 minutes. This may be repeated once; if bleeding persists, see a dentist.

  • Broken lower jar

If a fractured jaw is suspected, try to keep the jaw from moving by using a towel, tie, or hankerchief, then take the child to the nearest hospital emergency room.

  • Cold or canker sores

Many children occasionally suffer from "cold" or "canker" sores. Usually over-the-counter preparations give relief. Because some serious diseases may begin as sores, it is important to see a dentist if these sores persists.

Wait Time Before Treatment:
You may come to our office immediately as a walk-in and rarely, but not always, will you have to wait an hour or more to be seated and treated. Should you make the mistake of going to a hospital Emergency Room for a dental emergency you will find your wait time there to be anywhere from 6 to 12 hours. There you may be given a prescription for an antibiotic and Motrin tablets for pain. More than likely you will then be referred to our emergency dental office since many metro area hospitals refer to us routinely for their dental emergencies that do not require the services of an oral surgeon.


When Your dentist Refers You To Us:
Many dentists in the Metro Atlanta Area have our office phone number on their answering service and refer their patients to us for emergency dental treatment. They refer because we are open during hours when their offices are closed. Most of those dentists do not know us personally and have no relationship with our office. They refer to us only because of our excellent reputation in the dental community.

Internet Complaints:
We have treated somewhere in the neighborhood of 40,000 patients, and growing, from around the USA and many countries around the world during the many years we have been open. Our goal is to please each and every patient we come into contact with. We all realize you cannot please everyone. Unfortunately 3 or 4 patients out of 40,000 have seen fit to write what amounts to personal attacks on a few staff members because the staff member could not accommodate their request because of legal reasons or professional ethics. That is about a 99.99% approval rate. Some treatments we cannot render whether the patients wants it or not. For example; Small children up to 5 years of age are not normally controllable and should only be treated by a pediatric dentist. We may examine them, and when we do, the parent must hold the child in their lap for us to determine if they need the service of a pediatric dentist or not. If they do need it then we refer them for treatment. Many adults seen at our office have never been or have rarely been to a dentist before. Even our best efforts to explain why extracting one tooth will probably not get rid of their pain if they have severe gum disease or multiple rotted teeth in a row, or refusing to pull a tooth with an abscess will sometimes cause them to become angry. Most patients understand, but a few of them simply do not, that giving them prescriptions, rather than treatment at that particular time, is in their best interest. Anyone in business would love to make the immediate extra money but to us doing the right and ethical thing comes first. Thankfully, most of our patients tell us they are extremely grateful and appreciative that we are there to relieve their pain and comfort for them when they absolutely cannot find anyone else.

Bringing Children To the Office:
We ask that you please do not bring children to the office unless they are being treated as a patient. There is only one dentist and one staff member present. We cannot allow children in the operatory and they cannot sit in the reception area. In the past some patients have complained when they are in pain they are irritated by the activity and noise children make. We also found in the past that our chairs were torn and soiled, carpets were left with stains and debris and the walls were drawn on. Some adults were with the children but let them do as they pleased without intervention. Every parent is not guilty of this but we must enforce this rule for all. Thanks for your understanding. .

We Are Not A Free Clinic:
Some sites erroneously list us as a free clinic. We are fee for service. If you need a free clinic we will be happy to direct you to one, but it may take several months to get an appointment and it will depend on your income level also. Medical Conditions and Medicines: Please let us know all your current medical conditions and list all current medicines you are presently taking. For your safety we need to know this information to avoid causing serious medical side effects with medicine or drugs we may need to give you. If you are on blood thinners we need to have your doctor stop your meds for a few days if possible before we can treat you. We can give you prescriptions but we need to know beforehand what conditions and medicines you are taking to avoid drug interactions that coud be harmful to you.

Infection Control:
We package our instruments and do steam or heat sterilization. You may see what looks like dear tape on equipment, it is barrier protection we use for our equipment and lights where we touch and hold these items. It is replaced after each patient and each operatory is thoroughly cleansed with bactericidal cloth or spray after each patient.

Our Facility:
Our office is neat, clean arrd well kept for your comfort. We ask that you do not bring food, drinks or smoke in our office. You will be asked to go outside until you finish if you attempt to consume either of these items inside the building.
