Emergency Dental Treatment

How can we inform people that when a person has any type of Dental Pain, the place to NOT GO is the Hospital Emergency Rooms and/or the URGENT CARE Facilities? They are not trained to Diagnose the true cause of pain and they cannot Treat this cause. The only thing they do is Rx an Antibiotic and Pain Medications, both of which do not solve the problem, they only allow the problem to become worse.

  • Good point. What are some ways you would like dentists and the dental industry to address this issue with consumers? Do you think having dentists tell their patients to contact them with any emergencies, or having dental insurance companies include this information when providing plan information would help the situation?”
