Emergency Dental Care Reviews
"Searching a year ago for an orthodontist close to my office for Invisalign, Premier Dental Associates (PDA) was always the top and I'm thrilled and now realize why it was so well reviewed. Perhaps one of the most welcoming reception desk I've ever had the pleasure of being greeted by Loni, Judeen and Darcy; they are beyond Professional. I wish more reception staff would follow their example. Dr. David Galler was the reason I went to PDA, He is highly ranked on the knowledge and success with Invisalign. Dr. Galler is very thorough and full of information. A little over one year later, my overbite and massive gap are gone and I can't stop smiling. Natasha, Dr. Galler's assistant made my visits an absolute pleasure as well. When my office moved to Queens I still went their for visits and was often late, but once Dr. G knew I was running late he'd wait a few minutes fo me. I can't say nicer thinks about how overjoyed I am that Yelp Exist and so many others reviews Dr. Galler and Premier Dental Associates. Additional note: Dr. Neer Even Hen was amazing, when I had an periodontal emergency, he was calm and clearly explained to me what was happening, what he would do and what I should do in the future to avoid a similar situations. The Doctors at PDA work great together so I wouldn't doubt that they are all wonderful. Inexpensive they are not. But I don't regret a cent spent in this practice. Not only did I leave there with a beautiful smile, I left with knowledge of how to better care for my gums and teeth."- S.S. / Yelp / Jul 04, 2012
"Like many people out there, dentists scare me. So, when I woke up this morning and had a emergency need to visit a dentist, I came across Premier Dental Associates on zocdoc.com. I saw they had open appointment times listed (within the hour) and was a bit skeptical. Seeing all of these other Yelpers with positive reviews definitely helped put me at ease. So, I made an appointment and walked down there an hour later since my office is a few blocks away from them. Showed up, told them my problem, and was in and out of there within the hour: x-rays, cost estimate walk-thru, cavity drilled, and filled. Wow! Dr. Rebecca Bae was great. She was very friendly, knowledgeable, and assured me it would be quick and painless. Sure enough, it was just that! I will surely be back whenever my next dental emergency arises. I would highly recommended this practice and dentist!"- J.Y. / Yelp / Jan 06, 2012
"I went to Dr. Cohen for an emergency root canal. I was nervous - cause really, who likes dental work? - but he really put me at ease! He was friendly, gentle and fun to talk with. The procedure was quick and painless, and I felt like I was in really good hands! The front desk staff was great, too - the woman I spoke with on the phone was really sympathetic and managed to find me a next day appointment and the woman who accepted my payment was really thorough explaining the costs involved and what I could expect to have covered by my insurance."- K.L. / Yelp / Jun 07, 2013
"I've been coming to Premier Dental Associates for 7 years while my father has been using them for his dental work for over 10 years. Dr. David Ritholtz and now his son Steven as well as the rest of the staff have done a great job taking care of any issues I've had with my teeth whether it was pain or cavities or squeezing me in for a last minute emergency which has happened on several occasions. While I usually see Dr. Ritholtz, I've also had great experiences dealing with several of the other doctors on those rare emergency occasions when they haven't been available so no matter who you end up seeing, you should feel very comfortable that you will be in great hands."- M.G. / Yelp / Nov 12, 2018
"I had a dental emergency abroad. I hadn't met Dr. Grassi yet but she called me back once I left a message with the after hours message service at the office. She put me at ease, and had me come in first thing when I returned to the states. She was very gentle and comprehensive in her exam and discussion. I was so relieved that she fixed my tooth so quickly. I haven't been a patient at Premier long, but I am highly appreciative of their help in this emergency!"- B.T. / Google / Dec 03, 2018
A number of scenarios may lead to the need for emergency dental care. While some situations obviously require fast, efficient care (such as oral trauma), other types of damage may not be as apparent. Please seek care right away, even if you are not experiencing any discomfort, as there may be hidden damage or concerns that could lead to swelling, bleeding, or other serious effects. Oral conditions calling for emergency care commonly include:
- Knocked-out teeth (avulsed)
- Unexplained swelling or bleeding
- Tooth or jaw pain
- Blunt-force trauma
- Soft tissue lacerations or bites
- Abscessed teeth
- Loose or broken fillings
- Damaged or dislodged crowns or bridges
Our team is extremely accommodating and will work to treat your emergency as soon as possible. If you or a family member do happen to experience a dental emergency, get in touch with our office immediately. A member of our caring team will guide you on how to best manage your emergency situation until you arrive at PDADental.
What To Expect
Upon arrival at our practice, our team will quickly assess your situation and determine your unique emergency needs. Digital x-rays may be taken to evaluate for any hidden damage to the tooth roots or jawbone. After an assessment, our team will talk with you about our findings and review your options for care. Whenever possible, we do our best to treat your needs the same day. Some situations, however, may require follow-up visits to fully restore your oral health. If you have significant inflammation or bleeding, for instance, we may allow you to heal for a couple of days before providing care. Our main goal in an emergency situation is to get you out of any discomfort and resolve any damage to your smile as quickly and comprehensively as we can.
At the end of your dental emergency visit, our dentists will review instructions on the best way to care for your mouth and injury as you heal. Depending on your needs and level of discomfort, a prescription for antibiotics or pain medication may be provided. The use of cold compresses for any facial or jaw swelling and eating a diet of soft foods for a few days may be suggested. A member of our team can also offer tips on how to avoid oral injuries in the future, such as avoiding ice crunching and other parafunctional habits and wearing a protective mouth guard when playing sports. Maintaining your oral hygiene each day through home care and attending routine dental cleaning and exam visits is essential for keeping your mouth in ideal condition following your emergency. We will continue to evaluate your oral health and healing during each of your subsequent visits to PDADental.
Insurance coverage for dental emergency care may vary, according to individual plans and companies. But even if your visit is not fully covered by insurance, we still want you to get the emergency treatment that you need. PDADental is pleased to accept a range of flexible payment options, including low-interest financing plans, and will work closely with you to find an option suitable for you.
