Dental emergencies should be addressed right away by a dental professional. Contact your nearest 1st Family Dental location right away. We are happy to see walk-in emergency patients during regular hours, but it is advisable to call us to let us know you are on the way so we can prepare for you. If the dental emergency has happened after our regular hours, existing patients can contact the on-call dentist. Swelling or fever can be a sign of an infection, and should be treated immediately at an emergency care center. See our Resource Library for a list of common pediatric dental emergencies and responses.
