Are You Ready For A Dental Emergency?

We know that the very last thing you ever want to think about is your child experiencing a dental emergency. However, the one thing worse than this occurrence is feeling completely unprepared to handle it should it happen to you and your child. The good news here is that getting ready ahead of time (it’s better to be safe than sorry, of course) is very simple. We offer advice that can ensure if the day arrives, you’ll know just how to proceed.

Do You Keep Our Phone Number Close?

Where do you keep emergency contact information? Where do you store most of the pertinent information you keep with you on a daily basis? If it’s a planner, your cell phone, or any other place, make sure you have the following with you at all times: Our practice name, phone number, and address. If you suddenly find yourself in the midst of a dental emergency with your child, getting your little one’s smile safely treated as quickly as possible will be much easier as a result.

Do You Know How To React?

Chances are very good that even if you think you’re prepared, you may still fly into a panic and feel over-the-top worried about your child’s dental emergency. However, it’s still worth having a bit of a talk with yourself now in case an accident ever occurs. Keep this in mind: When your child experiences an unexpected trauma or serious discomfort arises, stay calm. This will help your little one stay calm and feel safe. Then, call us, schedule an emergency visit, and come right in. Remember to take some deep breaths along the way!
