While communities across America are in temporary lockdown due to COVID-19, the American Dental Association (ADA) recommends that dental practices like ours limit their services to emergency care. Like everyone, we want to prevent transmission, and so are seeing some patients only on an emergency schedule.
When your child hurts, it is a disturbing event. Dental emergencies are no exception. Every parent wants to do the right thing. Some injuries to the mouth or teeth are more severe than others. If you aren’t sure it’s an emergency, call your dental practice. Any pediatric dental emergency should be taken seriously.
