Emergency Dental Care Reviews
"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 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
"I have been going to this dental office for about 3 years for my standard 6 month cleanings. The office staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. The office is organized and clean - which is important! My most recent experience here was for a bit of a dental emergency, and as a continuing client, I couldn't have been happier with the expediency of seeing a doctor and the outcome. I appreciate greatly that the office was able to see me day-of and everything went very smoothly. Dr. Erwin is not my normal Dr. but she had fantastic bed-side manners, explained everything thoroughly to me, and resolved my dental issue. She was excellent and I was grateful she could see me on a day my Dr. was out. I would highly recommend this dental office. I get regular emails about promotions, closings, and holiday hours. It's so easy to get to, just a block or so from Fulton station in the financial district, and all the staff I have ever interacted with (in person and via phone) are fantastic professionals in their own respective roles."- E.P. / Google / May 03, 2019
"Had a dental emergency and couldn't get an appointment anywhere for weeks due to COVID and places not taking new patients. He was able to do a video call with me same day and schedule me for the necessary procedure for a few days out. Super friendly and helpful! Will be my go-to dentist in the city for sure."- C.B. / ZocDoc / May 29, 2020

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 PDA Dental.
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 PDA Dental.
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. PDA Dental 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.
