recognize that many times it is not possible to anticipate
needing our services. Many dental emergencies, especially
toothaches, arise during the night. If you awake in pain or
have an emergency situation, every attempt will be made to
see you the following work day. If your dentist is unavailable,
please call our office in order to make an emergency appointment.
you have a new dental emergency over the weekend, such as
a loose filling or toothache, please call your dentist first.
If he or she is unavailable, call (718)
398-1969. Usually, definitive dental care
is not available after hours and on weekends for routine dental
problems due to staffing concerns. Your local hospital emergency
room can usually prescribe medication (after seeing you for
anevaluation) to keep you comfortable until you can be seen
by your dentist. All patients with postoperative problems
or concerns will be able to speak with the doctor on call.
