How Do I Get Emergency Dental Care?

If you’ve experienced a dental injury in the past, then you know how painful and anxiety-inducing they can be. Whether the source is a dislodged dental crown or a knocked-out tooth, priority number one is getting the fast, effective treatment you need. While your initial reaction may be to head to your nearest ER, it is important to remember that many hospitals don’t have a dentist on staff. Therefore, you should only go if you are experiencing a potentially life-threatening symptom, like difficulty swallowing or breathing. For most tooth-related injuries, the best way to get the care you deserve is by calling our office.

How Can I Book an Appointment Online with a Dentist?

If you are unable to give us a call or would simply prefer to communicate online, you can always reach out to us through the contact us page on our website. Although it won’t have as fast of a turnaround time as a phone call, our team will get back to you as quickly as possible (typically within 24 hours).

What Do You Do If You Can’t Afford a Dentist?

At Green Hills Dental Center, we never want cost to stand in the way of the preventive, cosmetic, or emergency dentistry you need. That’s why we offer multiple financial options to make your dental care affordable! To begin, we offer in-network savings and welcome out-of-network providers as well. Uninsured? We also happily accept low-to-no interest financing, have an in-house membership club, and extend periodic special offers. Don’t worry – we will go over all your options in-depth at your appointment.

What Level of Education Is Required to Be a Dentist?

There is no room for error when it comes to your smile, so you want to entrust it to a true professional. Fortunately, to practice dentistry in the U.S., dentists have to undergo extensive training. After completing their bachelor’s degree, they must earn a Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) or Doctor of Dental Sciences (DDS) from 1 of 67 accredited dental schools. But it doesn’t end there. To continue to stay abreast of the latest techniques, dentists must complete a designated hours of continuing education (which varies from state to state).
