We recognize that many times it is not possible to anticipate needing our services. Many dental emergencies, especially toothaches, arise during the night. If you awake in pain or have an emergency situation, every attempt will be made to see you the following weekday. If your dentist is unavailable, please call our office between 8:00am and 9:00am in order to make an emergency appointment.
If you have a new dental emergency over the weekend, such as a severe toothache, please call your dentist first. If he or she is unavailable, call 703-444-4400. Usually, definitive dental care is not available after hours and on weekends for routine dental problems due to staffing concerns. Your local hospital emergency room can usually prescribe medication (after seeing you for evaluation) to keep you comfortable until you can be seen by your dentist. All patients with postoperative problems or concerns will be able to speak with the doctor on call.
