Endodontic Dental Emergencies in Irvine
Michelle Lee, DDS is an endodontist and member of the American Association of Endodontists. Northwood Endodontics provides emergency dental care to patients with severe tooth pain requiring endodontic “root canal” treatment.
What if I have a dental emergency?
Should an after hours endodontic emergency arise that requires contacting our office, please call (949) 930-9400 or dial 911 for serious injuries. One of our staff will be contacted, and your call will be returned as soon as it is reasonably possible.
After Hours Emergency Dental Office Visits
If it is determined that an emergency office visit will be required, the doctor will need to contact the assistant on call. The assistant or the doctor will then contact you to discuss the appointment time and offer directions to our office.
Many root canal procedures are completed in one visit, however, due to limitations of clinical staff availability, after hours and weekend office visits are strictly limited to emergency care only. Emergency care is designed to alleviate acute discomfort. In most cases, patients will be scheduled another appointment during regular business hours to have the root canal procedure completed.
After Hours Fees
An additional fee will be added to after hours and weekend treatment fees.
After Hours Prescriptions
It is unlawful for our practice to issue prescriptions (antibiotics, pain medication, etc.) for patients that have not been seen in our office. If you are a new patient that we have not seen, please contact your referring doctor (restorative dentist) for after hours or weekend prescriptions.
