We know that emergency dental situations don’t always happen during office hours. We make it convenient for patients who need same-day emergency dental care. All you need to do is call our office and let us know that it is an emergency situation.

We will do our very best to see you that same day.


What to do in a dental emergency situation

Call Washington Smiles as soon as possible. If you cannot reach us, leave us a message so that we can get you into our office as soon as possible.

If you have an emergency non-dental injury, or if you can’t reach our office, seek medical attention at the closest emergency room.


? Broken tooth emergency–what to do?

  • Rinse your mouth with warm water.
  • Apply gentle pressure to the gums (not the tooth) in order to stop the bleeding.
  • If possible, save any tooth pieces that may have broken off.
  • Call Washington Smiles and tell us you have an emergency. The sooner we treat you, the best chance we have at saving as much of your natural tooth as possible.

We will do our very best to see you at our office on the same day.
