When should I call my emergency dentist?

Dental emergencies can be scary and stressful, especially when you're not sure what to do. The good news is that Drs. Shannon and Preston White are the emergency dentists in Springfield, MO that patients trust. Your team at White Smiles Famly Dental is here for you when you need us most.

Some of the dental emergencies we are well-equipped to handle are:

  • Broken or chipped teeth
  • Knocked-out teeth
  • Dental pain or tooth infections
  • Damaged or lost dental restorations like fillings or crowns
  • Soft tissue injuries

While some of these conditions may not require immediate attention, we encourage patients to call us for guidance over the phone on scheduling and handling their condition until they can visit our Springfield dental office.

We also advise patients to call us first before heading to a hospital emergency room. Unfortunately, hospitals are not typically equipped to handle tooth emergencies, and you could save valuable time and money by calling us first.

If you have difficulty using our website, please email us or call us at (417) 887-6882
