Endodontic practice is emergency-based. Patients cannot help when their toothache occurs. Many times we get more than one or two emergencies each day, and we can't very well say "no" to someone who is hurting. Despite having to change our schedule, we still make sure each person is given the amount of time they deserve, even if this means that we work late, or through lunch, or both. We provide emergency services on a case by case basis, after hours and on weekends.Type your paragraph here.
Consultations are encouraged for each and every patient, however, we understand that time constraints sometimes preclude the patient from coming to the office on separate occasions. For the garden variety initial treatment of any tooth, we attempt to examine, educate and treat all in the same visit. In the case of re-treatment or surgical considerations, we require that a consultation be provided because there are too many questions and factors that need to be explained to each patient, their spouse or parent. It is essential that each patient understand completely and is aware of all alternatives that are available to these types of treatment. We attempt to take as much time as is necessary so that end may be accomplished
