When you have a dental emergency, you do not want to wait days to see a dentist. Going to the emergency room can be fruitless, as many times medical facilities are not equipped to handle dental repairs. At Columbia Dental Center, we want you to call us first if you need urgent dental care. Whenever possible, we try to see our patients in need of emergency dentistry the same day.
Dental emergencies come in many forms. They can be caused by trauma, such as a sporting or vehicle accident. They can also be a small dental issue that has escalated to the point that putting off treatment is no longer an option. Whatever the emergency, our compassionate team does not want you to wait any longer than necessary to get the care you need. We keep slots open in our schedule to treat our patients that need same day care, especially when it is a dental emergency.
We understand that dental problems can be extremely painful and frightening. We can help relieve the pain and get to the cause of the problem expediently. Making you comfortable and relaxed is the first step in helping you with your dental issue. If dental treatment is needed, we have sedation options available to help you achieve that relaxed state, if necessary. Our goal is to resolve your urgent dental need as quickly and effectively as possible in order to relieve your pain and stress.
The next time you or a family member has a dental emergency, contact Columbia Dental Center right away. We can often see you the same day. If we cannot see you today, we will make every effort to get you in to see Dr. Leppo as quickly as possible. We accept many types of dental insurance and have financing available for those that need a flexible payment option.
