Do you need emergency dental care?Non-emergency conditions such as a dull toothache, lost filling or crown, chipped tooth (without severe pain), or broken braces wire do not need immediate care. Call the office as soon as it opens to schedule the next available appointment.
When the unexpected happens after business hours, don’t despair. Call our answering service when a true emergency occurs such as:
- You have a broken tooth
- An accident or injury damages your teeth
- You have a tooth knocked out
What to do in a dental emergencyCall the Smile Center right away. Our phones are covered during business hours by a live person, who can help you. After hours, you can reach our answering service for guidance.
Follow this advice closely:
- Save the pieces. Whenever possible, keep any part of broken teeth or appliances, and bring them to the office with you.
- Don’t cut wires. If braces are damaged, and the wire is abrading soft tissues, try to reposition it. Alternately, use dental wax or a small piece of gauze to cover it temporarily. Attempting to trim the wire can result in fragments entering your lungs or being swallowed.
- Choose painkillers carefully. An over the counter painkiller, such as ibuprofen, can help keep you comfortable until you make it to our office. Do not take aspirin – it increases bleeding, and it should be avoided for at least three days before any dental visit or surgery.
- Eat and drink carefully. Avoid sugary or hard foods, and chew on the opposite side of your mouth. Avoid extremely hot or cold beverages.

I would recommend this place to anyone..I was such a coward and embarrassed about my teeth and really didn't want to go to any other dentists. Smile center caters to coward and they have changed my life forever. Thank you so much.
I have a great deal of anxiety in having dental procedures, even very easy things like routine cleanings. Everyone at the Smile Center made me feel as comfortable as I could and put my nerves at ease. My recent dental work was completely painless, and the doctor, as well as her assistants, were kind and gentle. ~ Saram.
The staff at the Smile Center is very friendly. They always make sure to return my phone call as soon as possible. They've never left me waiting. I was glad that they were located in a safe neighborhood. They've never rushed my teeth cleaning. They always go above and beyond to make sure my teeth look and feel fantastic. They remind me of appointments with a card in the mail and a phone call, which is very helpful. I used to be a little dental phobic, but they calmed my fears. I always recommend them to people who are looking for a new dental clinic. ~ ELAINE M.
Continue the excellent work. I felt very welcomed and they showed me that you truly care. I felt for the first time very secure and safe being at the dentist. ~ Roumilda C.
I am always pleased with my appointments at the Smile Center. Cindy the hygienist is the best. Both my husband and I are patients here and I would encourage anyone who is looking for a great dentist to be seen at the Smile Center. ~ Nancy D.
