With so many Atlanta businesses closed during COVID-19, can you get access to emergency dental care when you need it? A lot of people are asking if dentists are even open right now. The short answer is yes, we’re open. The long answer is that we’re only providing essential care services such as urgent treatments related to dental emergencies, gradually re-opening to other restorative therapies as the pandemic subsides.
So yes, if you’re in pain and need same-day emergency treatment, you can call our Atlanta dentist. But you’ll notice that a few things are different, like:
- Restricted office hours
- Fewer staff in the office
- Waiting in your car and calling to “check in”
- No other patients in the area
You might even notice that to make an appointment or request emergency care, your call is directed to an automated recording or voicemail. That means one of our staff is monitoring calls offsite. Please leave a message and we’ll return your call as quickly as possible.
When it comes to emergency dental treatments, it’s important to see our Atlanta dentist usually within the hour or the same day. First, we’ll discuss your concerns over the phone and determine the next steps to take. In some cases, we might recommend taking medication for a few days to alleviate the symptoms before rendering any type of treatment.
Aesthetic & Implant Center of Atlanta is constantly evaluating best practices and recommendations from the American Dental Association. Please know that you and our staff’s safety are our top priority. If you’re in pain, call us today for immediate emergency assistance. New patients are encouraged to reach out if they do not currently have a dental provider.
