First if you call us with an emergency and you are a patient of record we may ask you a series of questions:
Does it hurt when you bit down?
Is it sensitive to touch?
Is it sensitive to hot or cold?
Where is the pain?
How long have you been feeling this way?
After we determine the answers to questions like those Dr. Rich will determine the best plan of action. Please don’t hesitate if you are in pain to call our number – even if it isn’t business hours.
If you are in pain, you may need a filling. If you do we offer a variety of treatment options. If you are in pain, we may ask you to describe the situation on the phone. Then we would advise if you need over the counter, prescription or other treatment before we meet. Whatever the situation it is our goal to advise you on the best course of action.
