For our patients of record, we will always try to “work” you in to our busy schedule the same or next day when an urgent situation arises. Urgent care appointments do not necessarily guarantee any treatment will be done, but we will attempt to alleviate infection or pain through medications or provide other temporary relief until an appointment can be made to allow time for definitive care. Please note that additional fees are charged for the rare occasion when treatment is needed after normal office hours. The decision to open the office is at the discretion of Dr. Black. It is always best to plan timely appointments for your dental examinations and continuing care to avoid unexpected dental pain or infections.
